    Any tips on getting the bearings out of surly hubs?

    Axle's out, but the bearings seem to be stuck in there.
    Tried to gently drive them out with a long bolt & rubber hammer, but they didn't budge.

    Any suggestions?

    and i'm pretty sure that you just have to tap the bearings out.

    Shotguns work well when you want to kill people and not totally mess up things like bulkheads, walls, etc. I'm assuming dude there is a Marie or SEAL or something.

    That's totally going on my secret santa spoke card, btw...

    If the bearings are shot, I would reccomend sticking a screwdriver or prying implement in the hole and just popping them out. It will be a mess but they will come out, and your hub will be fine. Then you can tap the other one out from the inside.

    Any of you guys know about M14s? Those seem like some bad-ass guns. Ever used one?

    I've used a mini 14 but not a m14. What's a m14?
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    It's similar to a Garand M1 but with selective fire and a few other things. Heavier duty than an M16.

    I can't tell you how to get the old bearings out, but if new bearings don't chear up those surly hubs nothing will. I hate Surly hubs. Surliness is contagious. It's only a matter of times before they start pissing off the spokes, then your rims will get grumpy, the cranks are always looking for an excuse to piss and moan, and it's all downhill from there. Definitely take care of those surly hubs asap, or before you know it your whole bike in a bad mood.
