New RogueMechanic Shim Kit for Pressfit Ultra-Torque Cups

by John Satory November 16, 2016

I'll cut right to the chase.  After countless requests for shim kit that works with the press fit variants of Ultra-Torque systems, I finally came up with a solution that I am happy with.  This approach is different than the approach that I took with the shim kits for threaded bottom brackets because these shims are installed inside the NDS bottom bracket cup and are designed to work in conjunction with the wave washer to increase the preload on the bearing to ultimately reduce axial movement and thus noise. 

These shims are PTFE and are made in the USA.  Each shim kit contains: (2) .75mm (0.03"), (2) .50mm (0.02"), (2) .25mm (0.01"), and (2) .13mm (0.005") shims.   With the four different thicknesses, you should be able to dial in the exact stack height combination for optimal bearing preload that should eliminate any noise that is the result of excessive axial play.

Detailed installation instructions will be posted soon.  As always, feel free to contact me with any questions.
