Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

new bike and a new problem

hey guys,
ive been riding a kilo tt for 2 years and today came across a great deal on a 2001 fuji track. (the wild red and yellow ones) When I went to put my weinmann dp18s from the kilo on it the back wheel is too wide. I looked it up and i guess it has to do with the spacer but cant find what to do to fix it. So what should I do?

I can't imagine why they'd have different spacing. Is the frame bent?

You can see the spacers in this photo.



Go to the Parktools website. They have all the maintenance guides you could ever need.

This is for working on hubs.

They should be the same width.
