Hello all,

Recently I acquired a Recon cassette for a almost complete bike build. The hub is a Extralite SLX and I have had a SR cassette on it before no troubles. The new Recon cassette though ever so slightly rubs on the spokes. I believe a freewheel spacer about .3mm thick would work however I can not seem to find such a thing.

Has anyone else encountered a similar problem or know where to find such a thin spacer?

Thanks

I have no experience with the hub and cassette. The spacer should work but I've seen similar issues with my friends bikes. It usually comes from a slightly bent derailleur hanger. I'd check to make sure it's straight.

You could try the Mavic ED11 spacers. They are 0.55mm thick and very easily procured.
