    Hey guys, having trouble with the metal retainer ring. It keeps sliding and getting close to coming off. Even the new front rims I just got have the same problem. What is needed is something like Vertigo's extenders how they have the flat brace keeping the ring in place. Any ideas how to fix this? At least till I get a second set of Vertigo's v2 extenders to use on the front as the V2 weight alot less than V1 extenders.
    Thanks

    Yer tried shoo Goo. Held for a while. I have a big dislike against Ca glue. Makes everything so brittle. But hey if it works. Thanks

    Scuff the area before gluing and don't be shy with it.
    In case you didn't know Ca doesn't like to stick to dried CA so if you don't get it right the first time there may be no second chance.
