    Pull off outer seal: easy.
    Add grease: easy- moving smooth once again!
    Replace seal: yeah, there's no way that seal is going back in.

    Cartridge BB Lubrication

    My bikes been through some pretty grimy road conditions these past few months, and after stripping it, the BB was a bit gritty. I gave it a surface clean (I haven't removed it as I don't have a BB...

    New Hub, Same Rims, Same Spokes: Okay?

    Hello, hello.

    Today, the ratchet mechanism in my freehub body went kaputt. Since I've been sort of planning to upgrade the drivetrain anyway, this seems like the perfect opportunity. However, I am...

    Rollers! (Kreitler or Elite mag)

    Hi guys, I'm looking to buy some rollers, because as much as I wish I could "Man up!", "Bite the bullet!", "Suck it up" and ride outside- it's just too cold!

    So, to try and keep my hard-earned...

  13. Chainring compatibility with different width chains

    I've got a bike with a 7-speed chainring that I'm looking to replace the drivetrain on, upgrading to either 10- or 11-speed. If I use 10-speed, will I have to use a 10-speed specific chainring, or...

    The clicking is when I rotate the hub shell and freehub body together- and sounds similar, but quiter, to the rattling. A similar pitch and timbre.

    I have a Shimano Exage rear hub- freehub style for a 7speed cassette. Detached from the wheel, when I spin it around the axle it makes a clicking noise. Then when I shake it, it makes a similar...

    Open BB headset mix and matching.

    I replaced the top part of my open ball-bearing headset, but left the bottom (crown race, bearings, and cup) to retain enough stack height. The ball bearing tracks seemed to be at different angles as...

    No, it works as usual- the band with the Sante logo and the pearl coloured dome above it slide off and give access to flats, so usual wrenches fit.

    I am planning on replacing it with a...

    Trust me, I have searched the Vancouver area for a thin 32mm wrench that fill fit my specific cup- there being a very close clearance. I don't have the tools, I have access to them.

    Just to be clear: I had tried using two wrenches. And really, I mean really cranking down on it. But it still loosens.

    A problem is that the flats on the adjustable race are about 2mm wide when...

    This is what I meant by I'd be tightening it against itself. It still loosens off after doing this, to the point where I could unscrew it by hand, with ease. Another problem is that the wrench...
