    What's the deal, you have a whole bunch of loose cogs floating around in a box or whatevs and you need to sort them?

    Or do you have complete cassettes that just need identifying?

    Sounds like you shouldn't leave it too long before stripping it...

    I'd advise buying a complete LHT, and stripping and rebuilding it (mostly for the learning exercise, and also because you can afford to take more time and care than a shop), swapping out only the...

    I'm reminded of a pretty cool story:

    A mate had an Omega Seamaster (the James Bond watch) sitting in a drawer for twenty years, because it was cactus.

    This prompted me to mention my mum's best...

    Nah, it's just a matter of time with a 7s freewheel... unless you have a 14mm axle like the cargo bikes my boss bought.

    Did you click on the pic? Are you somehow missing the fact that the chain on my 'whip' isn't a whip but a closed loop, like I described?

    Hence the '30' - that's how many mm the crank spindle is.

    PF30 is just an improvement to the BB30 standard, only affecting the interface between the frame and the bearings. So frames are either...

    Worn cogs, unused chain, shouldn't be such a surprise.
