I've never run spacers. I just tightened my tensiles up and left them. They seem fine, never worked loose on me. I didn't realise you had to, just thought they were for super anal people, lol. I always chuck 'em in the bin

What size spacers do we need for different ISIS unicycles? UDC is now selling replacement spacers. I have a Nimbus 24" with Qu-Ax cranks where the bearing have slipped on occasion. It appears this problem could be avoided with spacers. So, do I need 4 mm, 6 mm or 8 mm spacers?
Here is an example:
Is there a chart online that list appropriate spacer sizes?

My 36er has a Nimbus hub with Qu-Ax cranks, and is currently running one 4mm and one 6mm spacer - the hub came with odd ones and I can't be bothered to change it, works fine.

I posted this once, way back, about how I found that some cranks needed different spacers than others, depending on how they are machined. I think UDC uses 2-4mm (hub to bearing spacer) and 6-8mm spacers for cranks. I did find that the spacer provided with my KH and Nimbus hubs worked fine with the Moments, but when I got some K1 cranks I had to use a narrower spacer. I also had some fit problems with the Moments on the original KH Ti hub.
Having a variety of spacers on hand is a good for dong test fits. You don't want it to loose of the bearings will shift out board and of the frame/bearing will flex too much. You don't want it too tight or you'll fry your bearing or causing excessive spline wear (wobble).
