nimbus ii and profile hub.

i got my profile today!
it'll be built into my monty rim by mid next week.

does anybody else with this setup have any recomendations as to which
spacers to use with a nimbus ii 20" frame?

the bearings seem realy loose on the axle, i assume this is normal but
it does seem a bit weird to me. should i worry about it?

Hey, I've got the same setup as you. I forget exactly what spacers I
used, your basically just going to have to figure out what works. I got
these weird "flying saucer with a hole in it" shaped spacers, which
interfere with the bearing holders if you have them to close to the
bearings. Also, the bearing holders scrapes against the outside of the
hub if the bearings are to close to that. I had to stretch my frame
outward a little to get it to fit. Make sure it works before putting the
cranks on.

In what way are the bearings loose? If its side to side on the axle,
that's ok, it will be tightened down when you put the cranks on. If the
inner diameter of the bearing is way bigger than the outer diameter of
the axle, you might have the wrong sized bearings. Keep in mind that the
bearings are meant to slide easily on axle.

Hope this helps.

Ben

yeah i supose i'll just play with it till it works.

the bearings just slide allong the axle,
i suppose it dosent realy mater since theres spacer to keep them in
place,
it just struck me as very diferent from the bearings on my other
unicycles which have to be pressed onto the axle.

thanks, i just wanted to set my mind at ease.
