Was it EVER a mystery?

13.768" is right, 13.65" + 3mm

Your wheel *looks* centered in your bike check, did you manage to get it all working OK?

I wonder why your frame is 13.65" then

It makes me stoked that you still lay these gems on Bg

I think you meant to say your wheel ISN'T dished homie ;>

Pop it in a truing stand and check

The reason it does it with or without the slammers is that the hub is squaring itself up with the dropout. The only reason I inquired about them was to make sure they weren't inside the dropouts, causing the OLD to be too wide for the dropouts to be parallel. A 14mm axle in this case would typically actually bow in order to have the locknuts (instead of the wheel itself) square up (coning-out the bearing seats over time and causing hub wobble), but you are running a 17mm

I've seen plenty of frames (including $$$ custom jobs) do this and don't doubt that the frame could be to blame, I am just trying to help you diagnose it

BTW, just for your and others' information, "13.75" is just there for somewhat roundness and/or compliance with completely-wrong gear charts and the like (including Bg's), it would have been 13.6" in reality. It's a silly convention that has caught people out in the past (like jonathon) when you get a frame that actually IS 13.75" and your 13.6"-slamming gear ratio and chain length is suddenly too short :<

Are the wheel slammer things on the outside of the dropouts?

Is your wheel dished?

The dropouts might not be parallel at hub width. Are you running a hub guard that takes up more (or less) axle than the hardware it's replacing?

Does Fit make a hub guard that does this that it might have made their frame wider than 110mm for perhaps? Like when FBM and Profile made stuff that wasn't 110mm and caused this problem (and was responsible for some of the notorious Profile hub wobble)

Looks like a flatland frame

HTML would be < img src="URL"></img>

BBCode would be [ img]URL[/img]

(just remove the space between < and img or [ and img. I had to put one there to stop the forum interpreting the tags)

A no-slack coaster that explodes if you pedal forward. What could go wrong?
