These are 8mm ID aluminum spacers, custom cut on a C&C lathe specifically for T-Cycle idlers. Kit Includes:
- 2x 0.09in spacers
- 2x 0.30in spacers
- 1x 0.60in spacers
You can use a 0.09in spacer between a Power idler and a flat surface, like a chain keeper or an idler mount. The 0.09in spacer can also be used between the power side of an Over/Under idler and a flat surface. The 0.30in spacer is for spacing a Return idler away from a flat surface. The 0.30in spacer can also separate a Return idler and a Power idler. Finally, the 0.60in spacer is used between the return side of an Over/Under idler and a flat surface.
It’s nice to have good back up parts!
I think the biggest issue is that these spacers all had the appearance of being corroded, old, etc. Functionality in the different sizes provides an opportunity to explore what will work best in the drive line/chain management. The pieces look tacky.
It’s been great to be able to find all the needed little weirdo bits to restore an old bike at T cycle. Worked great like all the other stuff
