Wheel Offset
« on: 28.12. 2014 19:09 »
Can anybody confirm that the offset of 9/16" is correct for a front wheel 19" WM2 rim with a half width 8" hub? Thanks.  *conf*

if that's what it takes to get it central between the forks

When I dismantled my half width plunger's front wheel I measured 17mm all around with the brake side flat on the bench.
Corresponds to a little under 11/16

Hi All,

Thanks for the information, I achieved just over 15mm from the brake flange and it sitting nicely central between the forks. Now for the rear one.

Cheers Happy New Year
