Stronglight Activ Link Install
Cross posted from another forum:
quick question, I recently decided to move my ISIS vulcans over to my Look and pick up a set of Fission CT2s for my Lynsky. My question is in regards to the installation instructions on the website/in the box and reality, basically they don't match. According to the instructions the bearings are installed into the cups during assembly and also the inner sleeve is installed during the insertion of the drive side crank/axle. Not the case with my Fissions. Both bearings are already installed in the cups and the inner spacer can't be installed with the crank/axle assembly b/c it's the same diameter at the inner portion of the bearing. I'm assuming with this set up you install both cups with the spacer in between and then slide the crank assembly together. My issue with this is that is is a very tight fit. The cranks don't slide nicely throught the bearings at all. Before I go forcing the issue, does anyone have a good technique for activ link installs? Has anyone else run int these differences? Thanks in advance!
