    Cannondale RT1000 Rear Axle Spacers

    We recently bought a Cannondale RT1000 with an Arai drum brake on the rear wheel. I removed it, and I had to add a few odd spacers to fill the gap left on the axle.

    I'd like to replace the spacers with something neater. To get me started, if someone can post (or post a link to) an up-close picture of the left side of a standard RT1000 rear axle, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Might be simpler to post what kind of hub you have on your rear wheel.

    Here are pictures of the bike as it is today and the hub.

    I'd be glad to contact Tandems East or Precision Tandems, but I think the problem is simpler than that.

    I had the rear wheel trued and the drum brake removed at Richard's Cyclery in Garden Grove. When I asked about spacers he pulled a small handful of washers, spacers and nuts out of a box in the back corner of his shop. He said that some combination of those parts would work, and he was right. I'm just trying to put together something out of spare parts that is simpler and closer to stock. I'm pretty sure I can find the part(s) in my spares somewhere. I'm just trying to get an idea of what the part(s) look like on a stock early model RT1000. From what I have seen, they all had Shimano hubs.

    teamdonterri - We are 50/50 on riding with the Orange County Rebel Riders this weekend. We'll be very busy on Saturday, so that's out. Then on Sunday it might be better for us to spend some more time close to home continuing to make the bike "ours". For example, we still need to work on the stoker's seat, handlebar and stem. On the other hand, somewhere in the darkest part of my mind I can hear the faint but undeniable call of the Rebels...

    (Ali is going to be all over me when he sees that we bought a bike with rim brakes!)

    Thanks!

    If your rim and hub are original, deducing from bikepedia your bike is a '99 and the hub is a Shimano HF-07.
