My recent accident left me with a totaled frame, broken wheels and a bent crank. The only thing I can save is the Phil hub I had on the rear. The rim is destroyed, but detailed inspection after unlacing the hub shows no visible damage (cracks, bends, ovalized spoke holes, etc...). The front hub had a broken axle and broken flange. But I believe what saved the rear was that it recieved only radial forces (from the truck hitting it directly from behind), while the front recieved lateral force when the wheel turned perpindicular to the travel of the bike.
The contest is to design a tool or tools that will allow me to remove lockrings and cogs from both sides of an unlaced hub. The hub is a 36 hole high flange double fixed. The cogs are 17t and 18t.
If, upon my return to the US, I am able to:
a)build the tool(s) and
b)successfully use it(them) to remove both cogs
I will buy you a burrito and beer at either Raging Burrito in Decatur GA or El Myr in Atlanta GA. Your Choice!!
If you build the tool yourself and mail it to me I'll buy you two beers.
Deadline: whenever you get around to it.
Get cracking. Good luck!
Vegetarian burritos only
PBR, Natural Light, Coors and Steel Reserve are crap and therefore do not qualify as "beer"
Any beer costing over $5 a glass qualifies as "Premium Beer" and the winner must pay the difference.
