I have a 15 yr old Klein Quantum that is the most awsome bike...it's like riding on air it is so smooth. I recently had problems with the chain jumping off the freewheel so I had a bike shop order me a new one. It's a Shimano 6 speed...but it is very noisy clicking while riding and coasting. My old freewheel I had taken apart years ago and packed with teflon grease and new bearings and it rotated smooth as silk...with no noise whatsoever. I loved it...it was the quietest bike...I could sneak up on people and they wouldn't hear me coming. Truely awsome for a 15 yr old bike to be quieter than a 10 speed new one.
Anyways, I've tried to take the new freewheel apart to pack it with grease but I can't get the darn thing apart. I've got the right tool, I know there must have been some trick that I had done years ago to get my old freewheel apart, I just can't remember it.
Any Bike Mechanics out there with any tricks or hints about taking a freewheel apart to rebuild it? Thanks, Twinsdad93
