Is this a spacer or a required part?



OK from the outside in, there are:
A) The track nut.
B) The thing in the inside that clamps against the fork
C) The Mystery Piece
D) The hub.

What is the Mystery Piece? Is it part of the hub? Or is it a spacer?

I ask because the hub (as is) won't fit inside my fork. Removing the two Mystery Pieces (one on each side) would appear to make it fit perfectly. It's a steel fork so I don't have too many qualms about just forcing it on in there, but if I can de-space it that would be perfect.

The mystery piece looks like the cone lock nut, assuming the bit to the right of the mystery piece is the cone.

OK let me make sure you're looking at the right one. The outside track nut is the nut plus integral washer. Then the inside clamping piece, then the alleged cone lock nut?

Here I wrote on the picture:


My "C" placement is poor, the piece appears to be separate from the wider flat area on the hub. Just like a little guy sandwiched in there between the clamper dude (B) and the grey flat area on the hub.

I see it as:
track nut
integral track nut washer
cone lock nut
cone

I can't speak for him/her, but I think that's what jur is saying too

What kind of hubs are they? Do you have a parts diagram, or can you find one online?

Here's the link:

It says they're sealed cartridge hubs.

Does it have flats for a cone wrench?

It does have flats.

If it's a cone nut, it sounds like it ought to be there. So I'm inclined at this point just to spread the fork and force the wheel in. Any reason that'd be a bad idea?

If it's a steel fork, spread away. If it has flats for a wrench, I'm pretty sure it's a locking nut.

The cone lock nut is essentially essential. What you do is to tighten it VERY CAREFULLY until there is no knock after the wheel has been installed, and equally important no drag or rumble.

OK well I put the wheel down, applied some gorilla to the fork, and viola got it mounted.

I can now wheel the bike around!

Now if only I could buy the BB and cranks I might be getting somewhere.

100mm? No way... That's all the wide the front wheel is?

I'm gonna have to go measure that.
