    How bad is a bad cone?

    Recently while overhauling some hubs I came across some cones that were less than terrific. Meaning they had some pitting. For one I used another cone that looked a little different but seemed to work OK - it threaded on the bolt just fine and was very close in appearance.

    How bad is a bad cone? Probably bad enough to deserve a spankin' but I'm not going to tell you how to raise your cones.
    I had to re-learn how to walk once, but never needed to re-learn how to ride a bike. Cyclist for life.
