    I can't make it lighter, because if I did what excuse would I have when I can't keep up with you? Besides not having a 15 lb road bike

    Why do you want a pic of the muk adaptor anyway...to try and use the clownshoes on the fatback?

    Interesting 165mm hub

    In the middle of the above thread is a picture of some WTB hubs I modded to make them fit a 165 rear end. I have since done it with a carbon tube that fits over the entire hub barrel from flange to flange. I think the American classic hubs are similar to the WTB's so would be very east to mod. It adds about 40 to 50 grams to the weight of the hub. I have many miles on these hubs with no failures. Dont ask about the bottom bracket I tried to widen though.

    Very nice! I was hoping that Fatback would make a 135 rear adapter..like for a IGH, but getting info on this is like squeezing water from a rock. I am alittle afraid of cutting a new set of AC hubs.

    Hey, that's my bike...I ran the adapter for 6 or so months through the summer and into the fall, until we had 170 hubs to test and ride. It performed flawless and I still have it tucked away in a box somewhere.

    I don't see saving any weight using the adapter and a 135. The weight of the part and bolts will offsetmthe hub weight. Ease of rear wheel removal also diminishes with the 135 spacing.

    I would run this if I already had a rear offset wheel. That was the intent of building it anyway.

    You can pick up a WTB Laserlite on EBay for pretty cheap sometimes. Also Rotaz is similar, axles and hubshell but the cassette teeth don't wear as well as the WTB or I expect the ACs.
