ok, sorry for my lack of sense making. let me try harder...
i have built up a set of 20" wheels on surly track hubs, front and rear. the front axle diameter is 9mm. the fork i am using is a modified bmx fork with an extra long steerer. bmx hubs, as far as i know, generally have an axle with a larger diameter than 9mm, i've seen them as big as 19.5mm but who knows, perhaps they get bigger still. therefore, the fork ends are much wider in order to accomodate a larger diameter axle.
the problem is this... when i tighten down the front wheel (it's not quick release, it uses track nuts), the wheel doesn't spin freely. i am wondering if the difference in axle diameter and the fork end diameter could be the problem. and if so, is there some sort of washer type thing i could use to rectify the problem?
hope that's more clear. thanks.
