Lock ring clearance
#1
    Hello To Everyone.

Need a help! Is this enough clearance between the lock ring and the fork.
Some bike shops say Yes some of them No. The Lock ring was tighten to the specs.

I would really appreciate your opinions.

Thank you

Not sure how that would flex to contact.

General rule is clearance is clear. Doesn't matter by how much.

Certainly, this doesn't apply safely to everything (such as pedal clearance).

In this case, you may be safe. Just take it for a nice and easy ride to test.

Get a new lockring if possible. Use a Shimano one.
