so my younger brother gave me a nearly new Hope Bulb rear hub that he lost the pawls from. i order new ones and got the hub working correctly again. last night i laced it into a ditch witch rim with some straight gauge spokes and brass nipples. i went to put it in my drop outs and it wouldn't go! what the ....? it turns out that the portion of the hub axle on the disc brake side, that fits into the drop out is a larger diameter than the drop out. why would it be like this? the cassette side fits in the dropout.
this causes problems getting it into my dropouts (though i could just file the drop outs a bit) obvioulsy.
but it also means that when i trued my wheel it was sitting in the truing stand crooked.
why is like this?
what did you do / suggest to correct it?
