I could send it to you if you want to do some science experiments with your hub and rule out the cones, but you'll have to promise to actually ride on the thing enough to give results!

I can also teach you some good French swear words if you like. That is easier. Or Québecois ones. Those are even more fun.
Thanks for the offer, but this bike isn’t assembled yet and may take a bit of time still. With retirement looming perhaps I may get it destroyed by this time next year.
