Hard to say what happened. If it is a bearing or the spindle, then it is an easy/cheap fix.

Just take it apart carefully and see whats wrong. Sorry to hear about it and good luck on getting it back together.

Did you remove the shoulder on the spindle? Is that why you have that carbon spacer on? The blank metal on the outside what is that?

Please tell us what you've done in regards to your unorthodox hollowgram installation.

The spindles no longer have shoulders. Looks like a swap to a carbon spacer. Something funny going on with the dust shield, hard to say. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it is related to using a whole lotta preload.

Edit: didn't realise it's the older arms. What spindle is that? And your tire is on backwards... ;-)

Buffalo: I didn't install it, so hard for me to say.

Didn't realise that it was a mess to use a carbon spacer before now. Seems like i'm not the only one (http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/pho ... p-1/213655), but oh well that doesn't make it more right i guess.

The cranks will be disassembled later today and i will order new spare parts. Hopefully some new bearings, dustshield and aluminium spacer is all i need..

I think that the carbon spacer is causing some miscommunication. I don't think the other posters are questioning the carbon, I believe that they are questioning the use of a spacer at all.

On the older Si SL cranks (i.e., not the Si SL2 crank), I recall that there is no non-drive side spacer. The photo you have linked to is an MTB crank. I think we are assuming that you are running a road spindle. If you were running a MTB triple onna 132mm spindle, then you do need a 12mm spacer on the non-drive side, and a carbon one should be fine. With a road spindle, the spacer will side load the bearing. The Si SL2 crank and spindle set-up is different and does use a non-drive side spacer, I believe.

To be more clear, the road version of the Si Sl2 crank will have a wave washer, two or three shims and one of two different sizes of spacer on the non-drive side, depending upon the bottom bracket used.
