I like a little wobble. Keeps you focused.
Has anyone run these pulleys yet? I just realized my hubs are different than the ones @Savage1 used to make the pulley and I’m pretty devastated
Literally just set them up 2 nights ago with a new set of trucks from @Savage1
I did have issues getting them to fit my smaller set of trucks. He also used whichever model six shooter I gave him to model it
Were your axles too short by any chance? The pulleys fit like a glove but my hubs strangely have a flange on the drive wheels that it doesn’t appear were on yours.
Yeah axles were too short and it just wouldn’t fit, was no way to get the nut tightened on the wheel. Fit like I glove when I got these trucks with the extended axle though. But I see your issue because if I was going to fit these to my older builds they just don’t fit as snugly as the older pulleys psycho was using.
With great power comes great responsibility
I’ll take some tonight for sure.
Here is what I’m talking about. I have no idea if this design is synonymous with @Lunasi hubs but looking at the pic above of her constructed drivetrain it looks like the space between the hub and gear is about the same.
Doing some quick measurements, I think an axle w a minimum of 60mm is required for this hub/gear combo to work. Its ~51mm from the inside bearing to the outside hub bearing. 6mm for the lock nut w 3mm of “wiggle” room. For reference, last pic is a 50mm axle for reference.
Also, what bearing for the pulley? Is there a 22mm bearing with a 10mm inner race? The hubs have a 6000 2RS in them but that won’t fit the pulley… does it even need a bearing? I don’t think it’s a coincidence that a 608 fits in there perfectly
The old 22mm OD, 10mm ID problem.
They are out there. But just step down to 8mm. It’s so much easier.
But they fail. They always have.
@Common_good the 6900 series bearing is what you are looking for, almost. It’s 6mm wide which makes it meh for angular, sideways loads. Just don’t do a lot of turning and these are great.
I use these anywhere a standard 8mm skateboard bearing would go (I only run 10mm axles)
Yes they do, Pulleys need two bearings in them alone. So you’ll have 4 bearings total with the wheel bearings + the pulley bearings on each side.
