Chart for Properly Spacing Hub Axles for Various Speeds and Types of Freewheels

Hello Everyone!

I've been rebuilding my website the past month and adding updates as well. I've added a document to the documents section of my website for those folks working with and modifying "standard" rear freewheel type hubs. This chart will help you restore OR respec a hub without any guess work that so many "band-aid" or "duct-tape" mechanics often resort to.

Wheels By Fleming Bicycle Wheels Documents - mrrabbit.net

The document link title is: Chart for Properly Spacing Freewheel Hub Axles for Various Speeds and Types of Freewheels
The actual document is: freewheel_hub_dimension_A_OLD_sizing.pdf
The direct URL for the impatient is: https://www.mrrabbit.net/docs/freewhe...OLD_sizing.pdf

Next up will be a similar document for 7-speed, 8/9/10-speed and 11-speed freehub type hubs.

Enjoy!

...thank you for this. But what you said about duct tape was mean.
