Hi all,
Looking for a bit of help please with a set of HS33 evos I've just picked up. The kit I found has 4 of the D shaped spacers which fit on the canti studs, however 2 are the usual steel and 2 are thicker aluminium with an integral grub screw. Now I'm familiar with the steel ones and HS33s in general having had them back in the late 90s / early 00s, but only with the slim steel washers.

What is the crack with the thicker aluminium ones?

Thanks.

The washers can just be seen as the bottom two in this pic. You can just see the grub screws. I missed the subtlety in the listing.

Hi, the thicker washers are for susspension forks to stop the brakes catching on the arch, Judy's need them, not sure about other makes, memory fading.....

Indeed - and they have the advantage that with the grub screw they don't get lost in a trailside puncture repair like the steel ones did.
