This is my bike. My rear hub is making a bit of noise and doesn't feel very smooth, so I think it's a good idea to overhaul it.
Just to confirm that this is what I need:
Freewheel remover (This will work right? My freewheel is a Shimano MF-TZ06)
(Also is this better or worse than using a freewheel remover nut where you need a large wrench to turn it?)
I have a 6 inch (handle) adjustable wrench and a 15 mm pedal wrench (just arrived today). I managed to remove the left side nuts and access the bearings using these two but of course I couldn't do anything on the freewheel side because I don't have a freewheel remover. Will I be able to remove the nuts and bearings like that on the right side after I get the freewheel off? Or do I really need a 15mm cone wrench? I noticed my pedal wrench is too thick to fit into the smaller nut for the front hub (front hub is fine, it's a brand new wheel which also arrived today) but I know the front hub's nut is 13mm.
Also, will I need to replace the bearings like bicycletutor.com recommends? The bike is fairly new, I bought it in March this year; it was kept in storage unused in a friend's place from June to September, and the odo currently reads 644km, although I reckon I've done about 300-400 km before I bought the computer.
Just curious, what is a chain whip for? Freehubs?
Thanks for any replies.
