Well That's Odd

04 Nov 2007 at 17:28 Filed Under:

I've just stripped and re-fitted the Truvativ cranks to the Chameleon and now the driveside crank doesn't seem to "push in" as far as it used to.. now, maybe it does, but I've not noticed the .8mm of axle that's visible between the seal and the spider... but I swear I would have questioned this the 6 times I've had the cranks off... the NDS arm tightens up fine, but doesn't and won't drag the axle though anymore, even twatting it with a rubber mallet's not done anything... It's all very bizarre.

It concerns me.. but only slightly.

Expect a 'My Cranks Fell Off' post next week.

Are you sure that you're twatting it hard enough?

YUP
it's odd, I'll strip it and look better tomorrow night.
I removed the NDS cup and the axle went all the way in, but puttin the cup in pushed it back out again, I can only think that the shim's moved but it looks in the right place and the NDS crank should pull everything back together.

it feels solid, the chainline's correct (AFAICS) and the bearing movement's not changed. All very weird.
