Bontrager Select Track rear hub issues...Help!

I just picked up a used Bontrager Select Track wheelset. The only issue is the rear wheel is missing one of the combination bearing race/spacer/dustap jobbies. I've contacted Bontrager and the parts are now obsolete. Does anyone have any recomendations for finding one so I can get them on the road? Or am I screwed?

Contact a machinist, He can make that for probably 50 dollars and hour. And probably knock that out in maybe 20 minutes after he models it.

Have you asked your LBS to see if they have any clever ideas...or perhaps a spare one to toy around with?

My LBS had never even seen this type of wheelset before. I'm sure I could figure something out. Just hoping maybe someone else's LBS has one laying around? Or maybe another forum member, perhaps?

Wtf, Bontrager should be able to set you like 50 thousand of them or at least give you the specs for it. BikeIsland sells axles in various sizes, it also comes with bearings and whatnot but I don't think it'll match.

If all else fails and you don't want to ruin your wheel's potential, you can always get a 36h hub and re-lace the sucker...

You have a pic of the hub and how you arranged the spokes?

I've already done that. They had never even seen these hubs before. Go figure.

Plus, solid axles are different size in diameter compared to hollow quick release axles.

Solid standard axles are 8mm and hollow axles are usually around 9mm. I think. Lol.

rear axles have to fit a 10mm dropout/track end.

The critical missing piece looks very similar to the same part on a Surly hub. What size is the bearing?..if the same size as a surly hub you should be able to use surly parts, which can be bought separately. Otherwise maybe you can replace the whole bearing, axle, and hardware kit with something thats not obsolete.

Personally, I wouldn't **** around with it too much. You could probably ebay it for $50 even with the piece missing.

Ghetto solution.

Stainless steel sleeve, as close as you can get to the inner diameter of the bearing. Worse comes to worse, you could drill the threads out of a chainring bolt and slide it on down. Use a two small nuts to hold the race in position. Or epoxy/loctite. Washer to cover that mess up and regular locknuts on top.

Discuss.

I paid $50 for the wheelset, so I guess I could easily make my money back. Good idea.

I'm on top of ghetto rigging. Just giving some time to find the correct part or a complete solution first. Thanks though.

I've used "cones" like that before, but I have no idea where you could find a replacement. Nothing came up on ebay. Are there any other bike shops relatively nearby? Sometimes it's worth going that extra mile if you really need the part. Those seem like a good deal for $50, and if you can get them running again for another $5 plus gas money I'd say it's worth it.

I think this would work, from the looks of it you'd need to remove the bearing to thread on the inside nut, and you'd need to somehow get it perfectly in position before putting the bearing back in. I don't think any nut would fit in the gap between the bearing and axle.

One of those might match.
