    Listen! RF plastic bearing preload washer: DONATION

    So, I am installing the RF Deus cranks on a different frame. The plastic preload washers are toast, so I need a new set. I searched every bike shop in town and every website and noone appears to be selling these separately. If anyone has one or two laying around after installation, please be so kind and put it in an envolope and mail it to:

    4155 Riverside Ave.
    Boulder, CO 80304.

    I'll refund your postage and pay for the washer! The ones off FSA cranks ought to work too!

    _MK, are your current washers in good enough shape to get decent I.D., O.D. and thickness measurements off them?

    Hey Renny or MK,
    Would one of you post what those dimensions were, or better yet the alternative source for these? I figure if you post it up we will have it on the board for future use in case the question comes up again. Just a thought, seeing the number of issues with Deus cranks here makes me think that it will.

    Cheers
    C-

    Your welcome _MK. I can't wait to see the completed build. I guess this town is big enough for two black RFX's.
    The dimensions for the spacers I made are as follows:
    OD of 1.175in (29.85mm), ID of 0.913in (23.2mm), and is .040 [1mm] thick. I made these out of a common plastic called Delrin, the variety called delrin AF. It doesn't have any high-zoot technical properties or magical performance values; it just happened to be sitting on a shelf next to the lathe!

    These dimensions are actually off. The spacer I took the measurements off of, which is one I got from a LBS turns out to not be for the application. I still managed to squeeze on the spacers you made, a few broke, but a couple managed to streach without braking. I left my calipers at work, so I couldn't measure the spindle, but ID of 24mm, maybe 24.5 would be it. OD is pretty much perfect.

    I'm taking it on a maiden voyage today, an easy shakedown ride.

    If you made some more I'd buy some from you. Mine are gonna be toast soon and I need to put at least one more spacer on to keep the inner ring from rubbing against the e-13 chainguide backplate. Let me know.

    _MK, can you guess a little more accurately; 24mm is .945 inches, 24.5mm is .965. The current I.D. is .913 inches. Can you pick a number?

    Sirbikesalot, I can pop a couple of these in an envelope and mail them to you. You owe me a beer. A good one; no miller lite for me.

    I'm gonna call RaceFace right now. If they show me the finger, then I'll swing by my house at lunch and take off the drive side crank and I'll give you the exact dimension.

    Cool, thanks. I can turn these around real quick; the rod is chucked in the lathe, waiting for the bore to be completed.

    Called RaceFace and noone's there. Figures. Called Enduro and the guy was out on the road so couldn't get me dimesions. It will be a couple of hours before I can. Maybe one of the homers who has a set of calipers can chime-in in the mean time.

    Free set of spacers to anyone who can give me an accurate I.D. measurement. Emphacise on the word accurate. No tape measure measurements please.

    Ok, actual measurements...

    ID: 24.4mm
    OD: 29.3 mm
    thick: 1.0mm

    OR

    ID: .960 in
    OD: 1.155 in
    thick: .039

    I am guessing that the orig spec is metric, the spacers flex a little and i dont have the time right now to pull the crank arm and measure the spindle, but these should be good #s as I measures a stack of them not just one....BTW they are cheap molded parts so they are not all EXACTLY the same.

    Davep, thanks a bunch! Measurements off of actual spacers is fine, no need to pull a crank off. You da man!
