Hello Alta friends and family!

Ok, so some time ago I needed to replace the front wheel bearings on my Alta. I found the spacers were grooved out, and subsequently I found out that Warp 9 will not sell them!

I drafted up sketches, priced the material, sent it all off to be quoted by a CNC lathe shop. I planned on having them made out of 7075 alum to avoid anodizing, but it looks like having them made out of 5052 and hard anodized is only slightly more expensive.

How many people would be interested in a set? 26mm or 22mm?

Price will be more than the OEM price, the economy of scale is working against us here.

I was ready to pull the trigger in this month ago but life got in my way, again.

Thanks!

Are the rear spacers custom too?
count me in for 2 sets - 8 spacers total (4 front and 4 rear for mxr/exr) please.
The front spacers are 22mm hole x 40.75mm long, rear 20mm hole x 34mm long
Thanks!

Ok, there's enough interest to make this happen.

Only challenge will be determining how many sets of each style to make. I'm willing to bet that I get that wrong! LOL!

I'll get this rolling and keep you guys in the loop. I'll get them up on my store page.

In the mean time, keep the requests rolling in on this thread.

Thanks guys!
