Happy Week One everyone!
From all my searching within CD and other areas, I’ve come to the point of simply posting some questions to the community in hopes of getting some insight from the much smarter people on here than I, whom have experienced proper flywheels (we’ve made them, but never to grand success).
With moving forward with a flywheel in our secondary prototyping, I’m looking to get some insight with some dos and donts that those of you may have from experience.
Fairlane are constantly brought up as amazing wheels, and while I see the enjoyment of them, I’m curious as to how teams have attached steel wire to them to prevent spread. As well as their process for affixing them to their shafts. I assume the later is simply the shaft roller purchase machined and bored to a hex, but dont want to make assumptions.
In contrast to the Fairlane, I noticed 254 made the switch from Fairlane to Colsons in 2016, but couldn’t find a reasoning for this, though my assumption is due to the ability to center the ball while coming into contact with the flywheel?
If anyone has any other suggestions or experience points, I’d love to hear them to better my understanding and theory.
