    Wrongo, stubborn boy. You would have solved the problem faster by eliminating a potential cause.

    Here's an odd question: If I mount a mini-pump to the seat tube, would it be better to mount it upside down? Rationale being that water can't get into the shaft from above. (If that doesn't make...

    If it works you might as well leave it.

    Probably not enough load on the bearings on a truing stand. And if the cups are pitted you likely won't be taking enough off to make much of a difference anyway. I think I'd just replace the balls...

    The black stuff separates over time. It's great for machinery with zerk fittings, but I much prefer the marine/automotive stuff for hubs.

    When you say they are "notchy", are you pulling at the caliper, or at the lever. Try both.

    Did you pull the arms off the pivots? They may be rusty/dry in there.

    Sounds like it might be right up there with Performance. I quit using online with them because the web site screwed up the order so often. Don't know about HF - I've never ordered online from them.
