Default Aro spindle

So after looking at a few pictures of the spindle on the ts website I found that the spindle has some sort of a brace. Thats not the spindle i got. You can see it in the picture. They new this was a problem but yet they sold us junk. They need to offer that kit as a spindle update kit. What is going on with ts.

Is that new or just pictures of the pre-production set up before the one we have now? Seems to be in some of the early pictures and reviews done last season.

Not sure. But if you look at any picture on ts website it shows that brace. The spindle all ready has the holes drilled for it.

That's the preproduction spindle. The one we paid for at snowcheck and didn't get. The ones we got are junk China metal and the forks are mounted in universal slots.

Default spindley

the holes drilled in the spindle are a good starting point depending on the bike you mount it on, all depends on model of bike/fork rake

if they build you an indestructible spindle, you will find you have destructible forks .........which do you want to buy

You do have a point , it's how the spindle has been mounted that is causing the damage .

I understand what saying. The problem is in the top part of the spindle, the bottom is the part that's suppose to fail under hard impact. Due to the top not being strong enough and becoming loose fit in holes it's causing a lot of shock throughout the spindle and causing them to fold up like a pizza box. I just want a fix for it and would be more than happy to pay for it.

I added some support to the top of my spindle by adding a spacer between the front of the clamps just like the rear. It was $12 from my dealer. I also added spacers made out of tubing that go between the unused holes just under the slots for the clamp. 5/8" tubing cut to length with 1/4 20 nut pressed in and welded.
