This wheel adaptor is intended to be used with our 5 spoke pneumatic tire/wheel. This piece is machined to perfectly mate with the interior shape of the molded wheel so that the adaptor and the wheel will turn as one. The adaptor houses a 1/2" ID ball bearing so that the assembly can be slid onto a fixed shaft and rotate freely on that shaft. The 1.5" Actobotics hub pattern is machined into the adaptor so that a sprocket or gear can easily be attached to the outside of the adaptor to drive the wheel assembly. A single wheel adpator can be used and the other side of the wheel can be supported by one of the stock bearings included with the pneumatic tire/wheel or an adaptor on each side can be utilized for a more symmetrical setup. We recommend running a 1/2" shaft spacer next to the bearing installed into the adaptor in order to provide proper clearance between the bearing and the surface that it's running next to.
