I don't think so. The centre of your axle would be at the same height regardless of axle diameter.



I think.

It's going to be 0.32cm lower right? How are you going to compensate for that space above the axle though?

The difference would be negligible, and at the risk of rooting your axle/drops

Would lower the BB about 1.5mm... almost certainly not noticeable except when you are working on your wheel when it will make it a nightmare...

I may aswell bump up my source order an extra tenner for free postage and a free gift so:

Those dope mutiny top caps with the 'happiness' text on will do it nicely, will it fit on oddy race forks? The write up says the top cap is h25 which means nothing to me.

Thanks.

25 is the cheap rip-off of Ody's 24mm that doesn't leave enough wall thickness

Worth knowing, ta! I should use this quick questions more.

So my order was:

The new Dugan pedals for my bmx,
Duo pedals which I like and get through on my fixie,
3 half price ish sets of duo houndstooth grips  I like and get through on my fixie,
The Brighton ain't ready DVD/ book thing that looks awesome,
The Santa Cruz  wax as a dope ornament for my room,
So the free gift is free postage and now my third source tee.

Will be waiting...

I have an original Flybikes rim, i noticed the first hole to the left of the valve hole is not on the cross lacing side.
So i assume you're supposed to start lacing it with the second hole on the left of the valve?

You have to build it like a mirror, is how i would describe it. Eclat and BSD rims are like that as well. Basically, instead of starting to the left of the valve and going right, you start at the right and work to the left.
