I'm currently in the process of stripping and rebuilding two bikes. The paint on the 1st one is curing so I'm busy working on the 2nd.
The bike is an old Giant TS-180 (no idea what year) but is a 5 speed and appears to be rocking some fairly old parts.
I am currently refurbishing the wheels. I managed to fairly easily take out and clean the front wheel bearings and cones and regrease/reassemble.
I am now working on the rear wheel. Couple issues.
(1) It is a Freewheel rather than a Freehub/Cassette arrangement and as you can see the wheel axle is an old-bolt setup rather than an axle with a hole for a skewer. This means my Shimano Lockring Tool which is similar to this one ain't gonna work as it can't go through the non-existent skewer holes.
(2) The bolt won't come out without removing the freewheel - is this normal? I've removed the non-drive side bearings, nuts etc, but the drive side seems to be jammed behind the freewheel - like the bearing cone is bigger than the freewheel hole.
Anyway looking for suggestions/experience on taking this thing apart/servicing. I assume I need one of these?
