    depending on what size spacers you have you'll probably need a variety of cone wrench sizes.

    park makes cone wrenches that are like 13mm on one end and 14mm on the other in sizes from about 13mm to 20mm.

    pick up a few of those, maybe the 13/14, 15/16 and a 17 and you'll be able to adjust any cone you want to.

    While you are at it, replace the axle and cones. It will be a much nicer hub to work on.

    yea it's worth it to buy the whole set for $20 or so..

    you can also use a standard metric box end wrench to hold the locknut, or even an adjustable cresent wrench if you have either. then you just need the appropriately sized cone wrench to hold the cone. the locknut don't care what wrench grips it.

    even better yet, just buy a new formula/dimension/etc. fix/fix sealed cart. bearing hub. around $40 and way way better than any of this suzue jr crap.

    Couldn't agree more, but he has it already why not make it better. I made the mistake of buying one 3 years ago but it's still running strong on my beater with the new parts. My nicer fix has an IRO hub.

    i wouldn't put $20+ in a new axle/cones into a suzue jr when you can get a new formula or whatever for $20 more...but, well....

    if you already have the hub, just rebuild it with fresh grease and ball bearings and start savin for a nicer hub/wheel..

    and you can never go wrong buying more tools.

    On the "get more tools" theme: if you get a set of vernier calipers* you can just measure the cones for yourself. That way you can get exactly the wrenches you need. Afterwards (this is the really good part) you will be able to use the calipers to accurately measure chainline, head tube diameter for headsets, rim widths, axle spacing, stem clamp diameter, seat post diameter and a whole lot of other useful bike things. It's an awesome tool to have around and they're super cheap if you get a lower end one. I got a pack of six plastic calipers from Lee Valley for $8.

    * Vernier calipers are sliding calipers that fit both around objects and inside holes; they use an ingenious low tech principle to let you measure accurately to a tenth of a millimetre or 128th of an inch.
