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.
