    Stripped hub/Thick lockring

    Also posted in singlespeed forum...

    Hi all. I stripped the reverse thread on a hub yesterday, and it was no fun at all.
    The last 3 threads are still there though, as I was using a skinny lockring.
    Before I rebuild the wheel, I think I'll try a big lockring that covers the entire (6-7 threads, ~5mm or so of reverse threading.
    Phil Wood lockrings look quite beefy in the pics on their site, but I've never seen one up close. Can anyone tell me if that entire inside surface is threaded?
    Any other suggestions to get the hub running again or thick lockrings you might know of would be appreciated too.

    Thanks,
    creacha

    They have a fairly long thread and it's definitely all threaded, but do note that Phil Wood lockrings match Campy lockring threading. If you stripped a Japanese hub of just about any type, or a Surly, Formula, Iro, etc., you won't be able to use it.

    The lockring threading stripped or the cog threading stripped? Who needs a lock ring on a track bike anyway?

    Seeing as how he also posted this in the SSFG forum it's quite possible this bike will be ridden on the street.

    And in any case, why would you of all people ever suggest having less protection from equipment failure?

    When have I ever supported needless hassle like taking a lock ring on and off?

    If you are resisting hard enough to spin off your cog your a danger to yourself and others.

    I agree, you shouldn't be backpedaling that hard on the track. But again, he posted this in two forums and may very well ride the bike on the street. I ride my track bike to and from the velodrome and end up skidding/skipping it on occasion. At the moment I have two wheels sets so I suppose I don't need a lockring on my racing wheels but I have on a few occasions ridden my racing wheels on the street.

    I'm just saying that I think your post was unnecessarily snarky, although truth be told I've been guilty of that many times myself.

    my campy hub doesn't even have threads for a lockring and have ridden it on the streets and have never had a problem with it coming off even down a 500+ foot descent but then again i usually run a brake if i ride it on the street to get to the velodrome

    Thanks for your replies! The hub is a Zeus, so Phil/Campy size is what I want!
    I've been looking at the Paul Components site, their lockring is really thick, but I'm still trying to find out the diameter.
    Yes, I ride my track bike and track wheels on the street and yes I stripped the reverse lockring thread, no guesses how. And on my best wheels!
