    how do i properly set the preload adjustment on my rear hub

    ive just finished cleaning and repacking my rear hub. ive put the axle back in and put the cone nut on. i know i dont tighten it down all the way or else the axle wont turn. so how do i do this properly so the axle turns but there is no play?

    Patience, cone wrenches, a steady hand and sheldonbrown.com should get you there.

    Most all of the OP's questions on this forum could easily have been answered by Sheldon's or Park Tool's sites.

    OP- All these threads about repacking a rear hub? It's overkill, could have been one thread and got 'er done. Just sayin'.
