    Need help converting a gearie to SS...

    I am working on converting my Homegrown to a SS. I am using a Gusset 1-ER and there is a little rattling after I have installed it one the hub. Has anyone used this product and run into this problem? There isn't a lot of room, just enough to be really annoying. Is there anything I can use to take up a little room without messing it up? Thanks for the help.

    Go to LBS

    The local bike shop should have a thin spacer or two, I think the .5mm ones are steel and have a notched appearance.

    They may try to hose you for the alloy 1mm if they are low on stock.

    Older cassetts often came with a .5mm steel one.

    i had the same problem. i went to my lbs and found a spacer the right size to fill the spake and take away the rattle. works like a charm.
