<<>>>><<<<>>><<<<>>>>><<<<<>>>>> EDIT <><><><><><><><>><<<><><><><
><><><><>THE PROBLEM WAS FIXED BY 3 25 CENT WASHERS! THANKS EVERYONE, I'VE REGAINED MY FAITH IN MY lbs AND TAKE BACK ALL THAT I SAY, BASICALLY THEY JUST DIDN'T FEEL THEY SHOULD GO OUT AND GET THE WASHERS FOR MY DAD WHO IS TAKING CARE OF THIS FOR ME. THANKS AGAIN!<><><><><><><><


Alright, I just switched some parts over to another frame and the LBS says they need all sorts of spacers etc. and can't get it done. This is where the problem is:

I'm running a new old stock Jay Mirron signiture frame and trying to put on:
XS- 3pc cranks
profile blackjack sprocket 36t, the thicker one with a kmc 415h chain and acs fatclaw freewheel.

Can anyone tell me what spacers I need to make these parts work?????? Is there a spacer kit or somethign I can pick up somewhere that just has tons of spacers? I hate LBS's! they don't seem to know *****

The spindle is the same diameter as on Primo Powerbites (22mm), so just get some spacers for those.

I just checked out what you said and checked at dans comp, under bottom brackets would I need the part called "primo spacer" would that contain what I need? If anyone can tell me what spacers even are exactly that would be wonderful (and yes i know somewhat sad)

I like how you stated earlier that the LBS "doesn't know sh1t", even though you're the one who doesn't know what a spacer is.

And if you don't have the bike yet, I wouldn't recommend doing a thing.

Point well taken, unfourtantly they are known for not knowing anything about BMX's, but yes, i too am known for not knowing much about BMX's coming from a mountain biking past. I know what a spacer is, i think, i am not to proud to admit to be wrong, i am simply curious if my idea of what i always referred to as the spacer (the peace going between the bb bearings or the other little metal piece between the sprocket. . .) or if i should be looking for another part. But yes, it is nieve of me to say they don't know $hit and turn around and ask a ridiculous question. . . .can't deny that haha
