    Intense m1 rear wheel help

    So the rear wheel on my intense m1 is obviously off center. I have the big black cone like spacer inbetween the sides of the rear triangle and thats it. It really seems like im missing a spacer, but if i am i dont know where it went. can someone post a picture or something of the rear axel on a 2002-2003 m1? it would be really appreciated.

    My only thought is that the spacer on the outside should go inside. i have no idea though. Is there a place to got replacement spacers or any sort of spacer that would work?

    What makes you think its the hub thats out and not just the rim?
    1. Is your chain line spot on?.....
    2 .Is the brake aligned ok without being at the extreme of lateral adjustment range or using non-standard spacers/washers?

    if answer to 1 and 2 is yes, then its your rim thats out
    DON'T TELL ME I'M STILL ON THAT FECKIN' ISLAND! ....

    Alright. I only asked this because my tire is closer to hitting the left side of my rear triangle, and there is much more room on the right.
    Thanks for all the help

    Take it to a shop and have them properly dish your wheel.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    fyi

    dish is where, when building wheels, you offset the middle line of the rim...was done a lot on 135mm rear spacing rims
