Front Hub Help
#1
ok i managed to scrounge a second hand hub of a friend today, and had it laced onto the singletracks, the only problem is that the axle seems to make the disc rotor scrape along the caliper as it spins, so this led me to think maybe the axle is to far over to the one side....

am i right in thinking this ? and is there anyway to fix it ?

its a cup and cone hub if that helps

Re-align your brake caliper.  There should be some bolts on it somewhere that you can undo, apply the brake and retighten.  Should sort it!

have already tried that unfortunatly  Sad the washer/spacer on the screw attatching the caliper to an adapter seems to be the culprit... thats what lead me to think that its the hub

As pittgoat says you will need to change the washer/s to a slimmer/thicker washer to get the adjustment. Make sure you have the same amount/thickness of washers on both bolts.  Some of these washers are micro thin because sometimes thats all thats needed.

Like you suggest, it can be done on the axle but its a real pain in the @rse to do as your taliking about such fine adjustments. You will struggle to be accurate enough moving the nuts & cones etc..

the forks are IS mounts but the caliper is a post mount and there is an adaptor between the 2

You normally get a fair amount of adjustment on the post mounts, hence most manufacturers are changing to them. I must admit I'm struggling to picture the problem without seeing it. Unfortunately it sounds like a trip to the local shop... I'm sure when its fixed the answer is probably  a very simple solution... that always seems to be the way when you pay someone to do it. Sorry I couldn't be of any more help.. Unless you can post/email a photo then we'll head scratch together so to speak.
