Does anyone know of any hex adaptors slightly wider than the stock ones? I noticed since the TC3 isnt the whole 190mm that I could add some width and still be within the rules.

just put 1mm or 0.5mm shims between the hex adaptor and the rim to adjust it !

Part # 1450
I'm rolling on the floor now.
haha...

BTW, I already ordered 2 sets of brp polished hinge pins because ti ones are so much expensive.
If you posted before, I could've ordered only one set and sleep well. Man.

I'll just sell them to somebody telling they are ti hinge pins.


Just kidding.

I'll try to find them when I go to a local hardware store.
Thanks for the tip.
Hope those work better and cost much less.

Anybody making aluminum front body post or have been using them?

Plastic body post are really weak and threads strip all the time.

I wonder if aluminum body post of XXXS would fit.
