Default Re: Manic Mechanic Hub Adaptor

It seems to measure about 1.506 (measured with micrometer). Hmm... that sucks. Don't know how the thing looks mechanically (the pics aren't all that detailed), but I'm thinking about getting it anyway and wrapping the hub in some thin rubber to space it out.

The rubber might bump it a bit (hundredth of an inch or so) in either direction, but that's still a heck of a lot better than the rag joint which is near impossible to align with that little of an error.

I'm picturing like a 2-piece thing that clamps down with bolts on either side, similar to the way the tensioner mounts to the chainstay, except its more cut from a metal block rather than bent sheet metal. Don't know if that's what it is or not. Hard to tell from the pics.

EDIT: But that's all if pirate doesn't have the cranbrook model. Will definitely ask when I get the $$.
