    Lefty Wheelset - Mavic Crossmax ST

    Just about to fit my new Lefty wheel to my new lefty fork and have a question.

    The wheel arrived with the bearing dust seal in a separate bag. I know where it fits, however the question is, Q1 should the bearing be pressed into the hub further than it currently is - I expect the answer is yes, but no harm in double checking.

    As the photos show, the disc rotor has to be removed to fit the dust seal, but currently the bearing outer race is flush with the hub face (that the rotor sits on). Q2 The dust seal should be flush with the hub face, right ? Also, Q3, is it normal for the rotor to be overlapping with the bearing hole ?

    One final one, Q4, what torque does the end cap need to be tightened to - can't seem to find any reference to it, only the end screw.

    Thanks,

    Q1 should the bearing be pressed into the hub further than it currently is - I expect the answer is yes, but no harm in double checking. See if the bearing can be pressed in further, fully seating it into the socket.

    Q2 The dust seal should be flush with the hub face, right ? Some people remove the dust seal. On my Cmax ST, I still have it and it fits flush between the bearing and the rotor.

    Q3, is it normal for the rotor to be overlapping with the bearing hole ? Yes

    Q4, what torque does the end cap need to be tightened to - can't seem to find any reference to it, only the end screw Snug, not torqued, BTW it's also left hand thread.
