Presume you are talking about the Hirth joint teeth meeting?Any of you early adaptors out there tried it yet?
Just had fitting it, and holding it up to outside of the shell, it looks like the teeth can quite fully meet... the spider seems to be holding it off too far, even without any spacers on either side....
Huh. Yeah, I'm talking about the Hirth teeth.no problems with mine. I have an S-Works crankset on an Allez Sprint X2 frameset.
Yeah, I've seen that service manual. It doesn't help... I did get a spesh tech guy on phone this morning. He seemed pretty knowledgeable -- he has a sprint that HE put an S-works crank in. He said that the only way it will work is if you leave off the thin adjustable cover-spacer on NDS and just use standard flat bearing cover from a standard BB30 kit plus a wavy washer, and then just the flat cover, no spacer on drive side.You seem stymied. Glad you established that it is Hirth teeth and not chain ring teeth or even human teeth. So we have established you have a 'bad bite'...the bicycle equivalent of TMJ.
Can we ask where the Sworks crank came from? What BB did it come off of? Why do you think the spacers that came with the crank will work for your BB30? Teeth engagement is based upon spacing for left and right side.
Pics matter if you want better feedback.
Don't need any Sprints to go thru LBS for them to remain clueless. Desk jockeys at Specialized are almost as bad.
PS. if you dig around the web, Spesh has service manual PDF's that show different spacer mix for different BB type for their hirth joint S-works crank.
Two excellent points...second point was a question I asked. If the frameset is brand new and shipped with fresh BB30 bearings from the factory the bearings are likely correct 7mm wide.I know nothing about this specific setup, but reading the thread and looking at the drawing I had a couple of thoughts:
Given that the crank might have been messed with, is it the correct spider lockring? Is it fully assembled and seated per the drawing? No spacers in there?
Are the bearings the correct 7 mm width?
