So… Ever since I got my custom unicycle put together, I’ve heard some odd noises come out of it. It’s always made a noise like something is loose, and rattling around, but I check, and everything seems fairly tight. Sometimes there’s a creaking sound when I pedal with my left crank. My Bedford trials frame moves back and forth (horizontally) on my Koxx ISIS hub about a centimeter or two.
Do I have any real problems, or is any of this normal?
One one of my koxx hubs the bearings don’t crimp to the axle and the spacers that it comes with don’t do anything because they arent long enough to touch the bearing and crank at the same time. So any frame I put on there would rattle back and forth.
I tighten my pedals about ever other ride, so that’s not what’s rattling. I tightened some spokes today, and that seemed to help the creaking, but I didn’t ride it for a while afterward. I’ll check if that just fixed everything tomorrow. What are spacers?
