I just recieved a new KH Hub for the muni I am building and right away, the orientation of the crank arms looked kinda “off”, like they were not quite at 12 and 6 o’clock. I tried moving them to different positions on the splines and to the other side, but the odd orientation remained. In the attached photos, I illustrated this “gap” by placing both crank arms on the splines at the 12 0’clock position on a flat surface.
I think this looks like more than just a slight manufacturing error, I guess I expected more from KH??
Anyone seen this before? What do you think?
Should I ask for a replacement hub/crank arms??
“umm… how about putting them on the right way?
try and then keep complaining if necessary”
Umm, not complaining, I did try putting them on the right way, but the arms are off that same 1/4" in the correct positions, making me think the hub is defective. Point being that I don’t want to invest wheel building time/$$ if the hub is defective.
A friend got a KH24 within the last month and he has the same problem. He tried a different set of cranks and had the same offset. Looks like it is the hub in his case and I would guess yours as well. He got his from a bicycle dealer but not sure which one.
