This is the BB. [/img]
Maybe I could remove it and replace with a longer spindle, but:
1) How do I remove it (sorry never done it before)
2) Where do I get or have made a longer spindle?

It's SO frustrating, I only need another 2mm and it would work lovely!

On a brighter note though, I swapped out the rear elastomers tonight for some softer ones and they work really nice, I also worked out how to adjust the pre-load :D

May be worth contacting Boone, they may be able to fabricate a longer titanium spindle for you :D

WOO - HOO! I got a reply from the man himself! (Gary Fisher)

He says there are some washers on the BB which allow the spindle to be shifted left or right. Will try this later.
