Parts You Never New Existed: Brake Spacers

   With all kinds of companies making frames, brakes, and wheels, it's no surprise that there are some challenges when it comes to making your brakes work smoothly. I recently stumbled across this product from Velosolo to help with rotor alignment:

   Well, it turns out that in addition to fine tuning the spacing of your brake rotor, you can use them to adjust the position of a cog bolted to the brake rotor mount of a wheel.

   You may recall I did this with the Iro a while back. I had to use some washers that I'd filed down to get the cog to fit right. Now that Velosolo is making these things, no more washer filing!
