Got my set of Shifts on Saturday. Started messing around with them last night. So far I'm liking them. I was setting them up with some VP SLW v1 wheels. Using the Shifts instead of the SLW hubs. Everything installed nice and smooth. The spacers are just the right diameter that they don't stick out between the spokes. Unlike my homemade spacers.

Though I will admit I will not be using the Shifts with these wheels rather I will be using these to build some dually wheels for a build later this spring. They fit great but the pin mount functionality will serve me better in my next project.

Well, it looks like I was only partially correct with this statement. It didn't occur to me that the largest OD on these will be closer to the hex pin than a regular SLW. That being said, it looks like these will only work with the outer (tapped) Nordic/RCBros weight. The non-tapped weights are too small in diameter for this hub to clear.

Jeremy,
Do you have any of the weights I sell yet? They may or may not clear still just curious as mine are slightly different. I was planning on getting these once he has something the will be close to a 225 hub

Also Curious,

Jeremy, can you get a picture. I didn't have a set of these wheel weights to design around, but If there are changes I can make to improve the design for the next batch I would certainly do so.

Sure, I will snap one this evening.

I think just making the OD slightly smaller would do the trick...

Cool, keep me posted. Getting the OD slightly smaller may be challenging since I cannot adjust the bolt pattern, but lets see what we can do.

Brian,

this isn't the best picture, but you can see here how the outer (tapped) weights have a slightly larger OD than the inner (untapped) weights:


These are the original NCD weights, and it sounds like RCBros is making them a bit different these days, so your hubs might work with his...

The outside Diameter of the Shift Hubs is .87". Should be plenty of clearance for those rings.

Looks good! Damn Chuck, that's a fancy ruler!

Will is sending me some of his half rings to test them out with these hubs as well...

No problem Bryce.

And to show everyone else, these hubs will work just fine with the RCBros weights:


Thanks again Will for sending me these to verify that they fit the hubs!
