New Simucube wheel adapters

simucube2
quick-release

#68

I might try a diy solution:

These spacers:

And then M5 40mm bolts to go into the Martin Ascher adapter plate.

Cant find M5 30mm spacers which would be better but M6 should be fine too with washers.

So bolting the Martin Ascher adapter to the wheel and then the SQ2 wheelside adapter with the 40mm M5 screws with the spacers in between into the martin Ascher plate.

Will let you guys know how that works or not.

I’m not 100% sure but I believe Martin includes all of the bolts required to attach the qr in either an A or B configuration.

There is a picture showing the possible configurations on the adapter page that might be helpful.

Also, you could use M5 spacers made from nylon which are more commonly available compared to the metal type.


#70

Any word on when the spacers will be available separately?


#71

Nothing? Id like to be able to mount my other two wheels without having to come up with some butchered solution. I like the simple solution to the qr but some update on this would be nice.


#72

@Tero any updates on the new adapters? ETA?


#73

I do not get much hope with the new Rev2,
Has anyone thought that with the new 70mm adapter it will always be necessary to use a spacer when putting a rim on the front?

Now it will be mandatory to buy/include the spacer with any new SQR


#74

Any news when the version 2 gonna be send to early buyer ?


#75

Yeah it would be nice to have an update on this. Im getting tired of only using one wheel. Especially seeing all I need is the spacer to mount them.


#76

I’m currently on holiday, but from what I know, there is a large batch of them arriving in time for the second and third production batches, and once we have sorted those production batches, we will gather the data from the form in the blog and get things moving.


#77

Im not sure what you meant there. Does that mean there are spacers for the 2 batches only or does that mean those of us that got ours on the first batch will be able to buy the spacers finally?


#78

Spacers will come in with the 2nd batch. That means they’ll start supplying them to 1st batch owners after the 2nd batch ships (1st week in August).


#79

@Mika @Tero

Whats the status of the new adapters for early adopters? Filled out the form weeks ago but still can’t use my wheels and do not know whats going on even though you said they have arrived a couple of weeks ago.

Can you shed some light?

#80

Handling the data from the form and organizing the shipment will be possible when we get a small break from organizing production of the next production batch.


#81

I have a question:
In the revision of the new QR, the holes of the 50-70 mm adapter were removed from the inner thread (the previous adapter had it). As the thread was removed, you must use a stop nut in case to use a front screw. Wasn’t it easier to leave the thread in the holes?

Regards


#82

I was looking for the threads myself I didn’t want to use the spacer if I didn’t have to.


#83

The 50.8mm are still threaded, the 70mm are not


#84

I would like to know what Granite Devices is planning to send to early (lucky) customers of the first batch:
a complete new SQR system? with QR, spacer and adapter
only a new spacer?
what else?
and more who bought 2 or 3 adapters will receive 2 or 3 new SQR?
Thanks in advance for the replies


#85

I join Biancazzuro’s request, then I ask (maybe stupid question) but the 3 cm spacers that I received with lot 1 (with 2 qr) can be joined to increase the wheel motor distance? I now have one but I would like to buy 2 more to bring the wheel closer to me. thanks and bye


#86

2 days has passed without an answer, I am a little worried about it…


#87

Haha, I thought this meme might be applicable at this point in time :wink:
