Yeah, that was a ridiculous hit. Someone did a good job helping him get back to the front and stay there lol.

Yes on the hub I used a flat head screw with a countersunk washer, on the inside I used a button head screw ran it threw the link then put a washer and a lock nut. It worked really well.

Thanks Drew

hey Drew,

I was just rebuilding my XXL3 and the new oring for the backplate seems like the new oring is way to big, Diameter seems correct but the thickness seems to big. I checked the part number against the Max pdf and its the right part number if they only had one pdf for the XXL3 and didn't revise it throughout the production. Have you seen the same thing?

No I have not seen that, will check with Ralph on Monday. But I don't think they have changed anything but I could be wrong. When do you get the o ring?

Thanks Drew

Got the orings maybe a month or so ago. from my batch it was 1.5mm thick. I think the old one was closer to 1.25mm but can't tell for sure because its been compressed.

Thanks,

Patrick

Default Drivetrain Calculator

Does anybody know where I can find a drivetrain ratio calculator that allows me to input all of the pulleys?

I remember seeing one somebody created in excel, but I cannot seem to find it again.

I couldn't upload it here...

So I sent it to: [email protected]

It may not be the one you previously found... But it should do the trick...

The current pulleys are from the Xray NT1.
