I want to convert my mountain bike to a fixed gear since I've finally nearly finished my Centurion commuter. I'm going to run it with my old weinmann wheelset because I can still ride them until they finally die. The axles on the weinmanns are too narrow and the axles are the perfect size of course on the original wheelset for my mountain bike. They both are cone and cup hubs, would I be able replace the weinmann axles with the MTB's? I'm sure I'll have to use spacers.
If both are loose bearing hubs, you should be all set.
Yeah both are loose bearing hubs. I've taken apart some really old road wheels so I could learn to service them.
Is it just a matter of taking off my lock nuts, saving some bearing then just repeating the process in reverse?
