    Hey, I just bought this old schwinn bicycle hub. It says on it made in Geromny on it. I want to take it apart and rebuild it. Does anyone have any experience with these? How hard is it to take apart and re-build. [​IMG]

    Spoke wheel

    Oh, ya, also how hard is it to respoke a wheel? Sould I just put the spokes on it and the wheel, and get them all snug then tighten untill it is perfectly straight. Just make sure I only do a little at a time. Tighten a little at a time and make sure it is perfect center. Does this sound about right. I did it before I just do not know if I did it right.
  3. Davidsis, there should be plenty of relacing instructions online. a simple jig to hold the wheel while truing it up is a front fork upside-down clamped in a vice. you can eyeball it from there.
