on a quick-release axle for mountain bikes
Pretesting of a carbon quick-release axle for mountain bikes needs to be performed without having to invest in a costly test system. A 8523 load cell provides the answer. The test setup in the form of balancing scales is equipped with a long balance arm in order to be able to add weights comfortably by hand. To avoid lateral forces on the load cell, it is important that the balance arm is set exactly horizontal and mounted in friction-free bearings.
