I have the R&G cotton reels, and they came with locknuts and washers. Are these used in the installation? The spools go on with a hex-head bolt and washer right into a threaded part of the plate. It doesn't seem like there is enough thread sticking out to add the washer/locknut combo.

Advice appreciated.

Does not seem it in the instructions.

I would just use a little thread lock on the spools.

What if you want to service the rear wheel with R&G cotton reels? It lookss to me like the reel bracket is held on by the axle. So you need a pitbull universal stand to pick the bike up by the swingarm so you can service the rear wheel with the r&g axle mounted cotton reels flopping?
