    Something similar happened to me this morning. I was trying to bust loose a thoroughly rusted-in pedal, really straining on it, and then it just up and let go. My thumb hit one of the chainrings,...

    Magnesium doesn't have great strength or resilience. Thin, like a bike wheel, would be too brittle. It's good for thick chunky things like, for instance, an old VW engine block. I'm kind of...

    If it's an old Raleigh, be sure the threads on the new headset are correct before trying to install it. Most old Raleighs use 26 threads/inch, where standard headsets are 24 threads/inch. The new...

    My reasoning on the Sturmey hub is that it'd be pretty much kid-proof, and if gears prove to be too much for him (I doubt it), he could just leave it in 2nd (1:1) until he's ready.

    Give it a shot. If he's that comfortable on a bike, he might do just fine. What about building a new wheel for his existing bike with a Sturmey 3-speed or something, just to ease him into it? I...

    Examples, por favor. I'm in need of something to clean up old crudded-up parts, and I didn't want to resort to lighter fluid...I may as well do things properly.

    Dunno about the Sun CR18's, but a lot of people seem to really like them. I'm using Sun Rhyno Lite rims, which are fairly wide, but I don't know offhand if they come in 26x1-3/8.

    That's a concern. I don't have a spare cup, and the race on the cup is in great shape, so I don't want to ruin it.

    I think I'll just mask it off.

    Masking it off is definitely an option, if I can't beat it loose or use the tool Narhay suggested. Raleigh saw fit to get paint on the cup, so I may not sweat it so much.

    I pried out the rings last night, and had a look at the cups...the drive side is pretty bad. A cartridge it is, then.
