DURA-ACE hubs nuts ~ How Do You Put 'Em Back On?!

DURA-ACE hubs nuts ~ How Do You Put 'Em Back On?!

I removed my Dura-Ace hub nuts (I dunno why) but now I can't figure out how they go back on.

They have that little recess running down the threading & that tab on the nuts. I line them up but they still won't thread on.

What am I missing?

Are you sure you're putting the front ones on the front and the back ones on the back?

I'll get pics asap.

And no. I've never removed the front wheel ones.

Am I missing a secret handshake or something?!

you're talking about the nuts that lock the cones into place, right?

Um, I just pulled mine off and put them back on, no probs. The ones with the race for the bearings go on first, then the locknuts. You sure you're not just too drunk to be working on you bike right now?

Oh, yer track nuts. They should just spin back on. I'm going to rule that you are in fact too drunk to be working on your bike right now. Trust me on that. I have much experience working on bikes while drunk. Like today, for instance.
