Great stuff you guys,

Especially Krisbrumm and 520 Pilot for making stainless spacers. Just for clarification, the all ballz spacers are aluminum with a steel band around them where the seal rides.

apart from outer wheel bearing spacers, which just wear from seal and allows to dirt gets to bearing through the worn groove, there is inner spacer.The problem with inner spacer is that is made out of alluminium.After couple of tightenings of wheel spindle, it gets shortened.If it's gets shortened (squashed), it's loosing its purpose, and once you tightened your spindle, the bearings are axialy preloaded from spindle.That very quickly kills the bearings.Ball bearings are quite a weak resist for an axial load, and range of press, which comes into them from spindle nut is significant, so don't be surprised that in your couple of year old bike, wheel bearings are getting worn very quickly.

These puppies look good. I'm not quite sure if they'll work for my 03 though. I have 26mm front and 20mm rear axles. Can anyone confirm if these sizes are the same for 04?

I'll second the All Balls spacers, fronts anyway... I just fitted the rear wheel spacers today. The All Balls website lists them for '04 + but AFAIK the '03 and up wheel parts are the same???
