    How to adjust Cyclone spindles with spacers and without

    First off, ONLY the 68-83 mm square taper spindles need spacers. https://lunacycle.com/cyclone-bearin...racket-spacer/ The spacers are 10 mm thick, so if you have a 83 mm Bottom Bracket, you'll need a spacer to take up the 10 mm of slack. All the other spindles, both ISIS and Square Taper, have adjustable bearings. They are adjustable with the proper tools, like a hammer, a piece of steel tubing, and a gear puller. The gear puller is used if the bearing needs to be moved further out, for use with larger Bottom Brackets. The hammer and tubing are used if the bearing needs to be moved further in, for use with smaller Bottom Brackets.

    If you just need a few mm you may be able to sandwich it into the the BB and tighten it down, using the BB itself to move the adjustable bearing.
