 I still don't understand how the spacers go on the shaft. Do you have to remove one end of the shaft or do the spacers have a slit so they kind of snap around the shaft. I ordered the Fox spacers but I haven't got em yet.

 its ok, needs to be cleaned up a bit. i.e (the 1-20mm spacer/1-30mm space and 120 mm spacer and so on.) other than that nice and simple.
