    <<>>>><<<<>>><<<<>>>>><<<<<>>>>> 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.

    would that make sense that those are the only spacers I would need ot make this work? unfourtantly I am unable to see this bike for myself being away for school, they are supposed to bring it to me and the last thing i want to see is this nice shiny biek show up with 1 pc cranks and plastic pedals!

    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
