Got my spacers done today! 32x37x2mm

They fit quite beautifully too.

Here’s how the bearings look once seated.

This time around the spindle fit perfectly. I had to play around with the spacers a bit. I ended up only using the two spacers with the stepped lip and not the wavy washer.

All torque down and everything fits and spins smoothly.

This experiment isn't finished though. I suspect that these bearings will wear out quickly if not fail very prematurely. If it happens that the drive side (that’s what I suspect) fails first I will be adding another bearing to that side making it a 3 bearing system.

If they both fail, then I will see about a way to widen the BB seat to 8mm so 4 bearings could be used.

Stay tuned.
