are the spokes not long enough to shift the rim over to where you need it? Of course, you've alreayd swapped it over so it'd be a bunch of work.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

They are the right length. Unfortunately I didn't swapped the hub my self and I had to send it to a tyre shop and pay for new spokes and assembly. This damn front wheel assembly cost me already 105 euros that means 120$

If there's a next time... you could most likely have adjusted the spokes in order to move the rim over in relation to the hub. No new parts required.

You mean that you can move left or right, offset the hub to the rim, to adjust the wheel in the center of the forks?

Yes. You loosen the spokes that go from the side of the hub you want to move it away from, and then tighten the spokes on the side you want to move it to.

Of course you can only go so far before you run out of how much spoke is in the nipple (on the side you loosen) or having it stick out through the nipple (and have to grind it down or risk damaging your tubes), but you can adjust it some.

I suppose that you can't move it to much like I was need to do, but that's good to know

Looking good Leroy,

Good taste in bar indicators, the price is hard to beat compared to named brand, hopefully they will last a decent amount of time as well.

Are you going to get both colors to work?
