WOW--Thanks for all the valuable and impressive info, guys. I think the best thing to do is just take the tire off the wheel and throw it in as a freebie if anybody wants it.

What's the story on this tire?

A customer donated an old wheel from the days when 7-speed was king.

I'm going to clean up the wheel and sell it cheap, but I'm conflicted about the tire. It holds air without leaks (original...

OK, here's the story--

This freehub is not interchangeable with the freehub off a Shimano-branded hub--I tried. The splines meshing the hub with the freehub are differently configured. The hub...

I have not heard back from them yet. Nevertheless I am 100% sure that I will not be getting the part from them--these wheels do not justify an expenditure of more than maybe $20.

Replacement freehub body for Rolf Vector wheel?

A customer donated an old set of Rolf Vector wheels. The freehub is shot but the rest is in acceptable shape.

I have a similar situation with a Rolf Vector wheel. The freehub is jiggly (loose) on the hub. Bearings are shot, I guess. 10mm hex wrench too small, 12mm too big, I just ordered an 11mm. The hub...

By "slipped", I mean that the shifter is not pulling enough cable to lift the chain onto the bigger ring. In effect the cable is now longer than it was when it used to shift correctly. You need to...

If your tube has a removable core, it may have come slightly unscrewed and all you need to do is tighten it up. Google for "Presta valve removable core"

7 minutes for an answer! Thanks, Francis.

Can you recommend a spoke calculator which has a trustworthy hub database? The ones I've looked at are not reliable at all. Thanks.

I opted not to do the WD40 routine since the symptoms here are not of anything being sticky or sticking or intermittent, but rather something pushed beyond its limits and flat broken.
