@batman, checked the paper first. It only gives specs for common models, and specs for compatible bottom brackets, and very light instruction (seriously, one step stuff) for installing a bottom bracket and what Allen key for the crank bolts. Doc number is si-0094a-001

I considered that as well. I'm willing to bet you are right since if has branding and stuff on it. There wasn't any other packing material besides a small cover to keep the teeth from digging into the box. I figured it could be there to keep the ring bolts from digging in the box.

Thanks Criggie, but this at the cranks, not the wheel.

comment Is there a way to make activity wristbands read bike rides more accurately?
Google Fit seems to do a better job, but I'm willing to bet it is pulling GPS data in to read speed.

comment How to carry a large backpack on a bike rack?
Wald has folding baskets. Have you considered these? I believe they also offer liners for them as well for small things. Another question, do you escort your kids to school as well?

This clamp does have that lip. With as tight as that clamp was on there this should work well. It was on there so tight, I bet I don't need the bolt.

comment Can a saddle clamp be upside down on a children's bike?
I wanted this to be more generic, but considering this is for a girl in the early years of riding, then I'll rephrase this to make it more clear. I just built my daughter a 16" bike though since she out grew her 12". The only problem is that between herself and the saddle height, getting up on it is tricky. She was doing fine on my son's bike (same model, bike star 16" step-through), but his had the tires replaced (2.1" -> 1.75") and the seat is probably compressed.

Don't worry, this is for a 16" pretty pink bike. She just has a award time getting on it. There is room to flip it over, I'll give it a few days to see how it goes.
