Front Wheel Problem

Swapping out the front wheel for one that isn't damaged, ran into this problem - it's too close to the right fork, the hub is making contact with the fork. Anyone have any ideas why this is or how to fix it? Rotation is correct, so are the sides the spacers are on and it definitely is a 919 wheel.

















Any help would be appreciated, I have the thing apart in my parking lot at the moment. :P

You're missing a spacer. Doesn't the axle act as the spacer on the left side (when you're on the bike).

Swap that spacer over and re-mount the wheel, see if that works.

I have the same thought as g00gl3it does. I'm comparing it to my 919 right now. I'll get back to you.

edit: g00gl3it nailed it. Switch the spacers. I show the spacer you have on the right as to being on the left (looking at the front).

FYI, I only know this as I've done the VERY same thing...

But I've NEVER been caught abusing a 599. #cough#

What are you talking about? I didn't catch the previous owners abusing the 599 but there's clear signs of abuse, just as there's clear signs you're abusing it now.

Relax.
It looks as though you ganged both spacers on the side that has the leg without the axle bolt.
That side only takes a small OD spacer that also serves to run on the ID of the lip seal.
The larger flanged spacer goes on the other side.

Okay, found the problem - the shop that put the tire on gave me someone else's spacers - there actually is one on each side, they're just the wrong spacers. The other person has come by and swapped spacers with me.

WOW! Who would of thought?! How did you manage to figure out your spacers got swapped with someone else's?

I belatedly realized that I actually had another demonstrably working and correct wheel with intact spacers in it (the one I had just removed) and I pulled one out and compared it to what was in the wheel. Didn't match either one. Put that one back, pulled the other one, compared them both. Nope, didn't match either. Called the shop, explained the problem, they called their other customers who had brought in loose wheels on the same day and found the person with the corresponding wheel. He lived close by and brought the spacers over, problem solved.

That's crazy. Good thing you had a spare wheel with spacers. Makes me wonder what would happen if someone came into a similar situation as yours and didn't have a spare set of spacers.... Damnit now you got me paranoid. Gonna have to get a 2nd set just to be safe.

when I had the BT-023 mounted on the front, the "shop" scratched my rim up like really really bad.. he said sorry and I did not pay a dime for it, still feel he owns me.. if you want it done right better do it yourself, "shop guys" in a hurry is just as dangerous as old blind ladies behind the wheel

In their defense, the shop only installed the tire onto the wheel, which I had brought in off the bike. They had pulled the spacers out or had them fall out when they were putting the new tire on it and got them mixed up with those from another wheel. They didn't install the wheel onto the bike in either case; I suspect if they had they would have caught the error then.

Still, in future I will be marking the spacers with a Sharpie marker.
