Obviously there is half as much material, but the fit is so poor the wheels wobble on the hubs. We have tried putting plumber's tape around the hubs to make the fit better. Any other ideas?
Also, the set screws are a pain. We never had a problem with the bigger wheels, but with these, tighten too much, and the set screw strips or the hex key rounds off. Tighten not enough, and the hubs come off the axle. Tough to find the sweet spot. Any ideas?
I've experienced similar problems. What I've had to do is tighten the hubs once like every 5 runs. It's tedious, and my tiny allen wrench is almost rounded now, but with my current setup I can't see a better alternative that isn't completely permanent. The extra two centimeters of possible can bonus is well worth it. However, if you were fine with not being able to remove the hubs and the wheels you could epoxy the hubs to the axle and epoxy the wheel to the hub.
