- Centerlock adapter fitting – HELP
Hi – I have a pair of Fulcrum red metal 5 wheels with splined hubs. I bought a pair of ashima adapters to allow me to put my 6 bolts on.
I slide the main adapter bit on fine which fits to the spline. however, te lockring you are then meant to put between the apdapter and rotor will not fit as seems to be for a different type of hub (looks like the type you would use to lock a cassette in)
then the ring that screws onto the hub which would lock the centerlock rotor in the goes up agaisn the bolt screws so isnt flush agaisnt anything.
appreciate this ddecription is crap!
basically am i missing a trick here or shoul i just tighten the adapter, fit the rotor then tighten the ring that came on the hub agaisnt the bolts??????

according to the packet it goes:
-put on adapter
-put on rotor
-put on spreader plate
-put in bolts
-insert lock ring and tighten
however, on the hub i can do the first two bits but then the spreader plate isnt wide enough and the lock ring wont go on as there is nothing for it to go on to?
either this isnt the right kit or i need to do something i am not. i looked at normal shimano hubs and the fulcrum ones are not the same
would a pic help?Posted 7 years agonukeSubscriber
I’m using one on my rear hub and the only bit that’s used is the silver adapter with the little bolt. I put the adapter on first, did up the bolt then bolted the rotor on to the adapter.
It’s disconcerting that such a little bolt is holding the rotor in place but I found if I undid the little adapter bolt with the rotor still attached, I still couldn’t get the rotor and adapter off…I guess the 6 rotor bolts hold the adapter together and stop it loosening.
I did put the lockring back on and it doesn’t go flush against the adapter but figured it might help deflect mud etc from getting in so left it there.Posted 7 years agolegendMember
got a set of Red Metal 5s on the way and i’m concerned about the centre lock issue. i had to get new rotors anyway so just went for centre lock ones, what concerns me is that the manual for the wheels talks about using some Campag tool to mount the lock-ring?? tell me it isn’t so…..pleasePosted 7 years ago
