I ended up ordering the CNspoke ones (same as pillar 0.3mm) from aliexpress
The shallow dish should conform to the inside of the MK3 better than the very conical shaped stans washers, and maximaize the benefit of using washers.
Like other have already said, is the heat shrink still on the coil springs?
Marzocchi used this funny clear heat shrink that is THINNER than what you will find from an electrical seller or bunnings.
You can get away with using regular electrical heat shrink, though it does come loose and migrate...
Manitou Circus are great, and at least used to be low cost and high performance.
They can be 'upgraded' to air spring (coil negative) with a MARS air kit, I think Dougal/shockcraft sell them.
Rumor has it they can also accept RS Solo and dual air spring carts as well, although I have never...
My Halo DB spokes arrived today, and they are NOT the gauge they are advertised to be. :mad:
Advertised as 14g-16g-14g which is 2.0-1.6-2.0 ~~ DT comp race
Their spokes actually measure 2.0-1.8-2.0 (2.2 at the bend). ~~ regular DT comps
The Extra thickness at the head is nice, but the extra in...
Item: Spoke nipple washers, less than 7.5mm diameter. Shallow dish
Condition: Brand new, unused.
Location: Upwey, Vic
Price: Cheaper than online!
Reason: Building up some Stans Flow MK3 rims. I don't want spoke holes to crack
Extra info: These CNspoke washers look perfect...
Still looking for suitable nipple washers.
Sapim MG ones look perfect, but they are 85c EACH at bikespokes.com.au!!!
They will still be around $45 from ebay. Bloody hell these things should not be this expensive.
I am considering going to the local bolt shop, and getting a pack of 100 flat...
Galfer 246mm rotor! I don't know who needs these, they are enormous!
Continental Kryptotal tyres in 26". Thanks continental for finally considering the millions of bikes that existed pre 650b or 29er!!!
Ok I ordered a 100 pack of Halo double butted spokes (2.0-1.6-2.0)
They come with Nipples which I may or may not use, but I am having trouble finding suitable Nipple washers (And at a suitable price. bloody 20c+ each from these websites listed above!!)
The rims are Stans Flow mk3 and the spoke...
I wish WP had gone to back to Magura to refine the 'boltron' fork they made a few years ago which seems to have flopped and been forgotten about. Was kinda dissapointed at the time they only marketed it at ebikes and never intended to bring the weight down and performance up.
Has anybody here bought / ordered directly from Superstar Components in the UK before?
I recently thought I would order their 'Slackerizer' angled headset, but got quite a shock with the prohibitive postage price offered on their website (300gbp! on a 37gbp item!!)
I sent them an email, and the...
Let me know if you want to sell the 350 when you do retire it. The NCR damper and air spring are backwards compatible with the 55 series, and i would love to make another 55NCR!
I have this on my hardtail (55ATA NCR) and it was an amazing upgrade.
Is it worth using Nipple Washers? I have read that they are not necessary.
Also that they are, but have more benefit in non-eyeleted rims.
So far I have only ever built MTB rims with eyelets, so never used them. But my next build I will be some Stans rims with no eyelets.
Should I bother...
I find it funny that Shimano tried to introduce what they were calling Direct mount 10 years ago, and it didn't have the best uptake. They abandon it completely with their most recent models, only for Sram to come along and pick up the pieces, and reassemble it with 1 less piece
Surely some frame manufacturers or companies like Woolftooth will quickly release kits to adapt frames that don't use UDH.
A few spacers and a blanking plate to fill the place previosly occupied by the hanger.
I think those DON'T have a Ti spring.
Marzocchi's that had the Ti Springs have Chromed or gold anodized stanchions. Steel models have black stanchions.
The Ti Springs were ~1mm larger diameter and DO NOT fit into black stanchions, only chromed or 'gold race' stanchions that the internal...
That hub photo is useful to elaborate on my question, but hasn't answered it.
Lots of older marzocchi's used this much thicker brake mount. ~5mm wider than others.
(Early 2000's Shiver, Z and dropoff series. Probably junior and super t's did too.)
Boost hub has the rotor mounts 5mm further out...
I posted this question on Pinkbike in the Marzocchi sub-category, and have yet to receive a response.
Does anyone here have both a 20mm boost hub, and an early Marzocchi 20mm axle fork with I.S. brake mounts?
You know, the ones that required the wide/thick brake adaptor. (Most Marzocchi's before...
