Well I ran into a little snafu with my front wheel when I went to change the rubber. The axle is stripped, the PO/POs, forced a wrong thread nut on and messed up the wheel on both sides. The replacements that I can find are all 10 mm axles and mine has an 8 mm axle. I would really like to keep this wheel, it's 36 spoke compared to the 28 spokes on most small bikes. Anyone know where I can find a 8 mm axle?
could of taken a link out, put the top of chain on then slowly rolled the tire back, it would of felt tight but keep rolling it would of popped on
might even need a half link instead of full link where you took link out,
it will be tight ish at first but on first ride it will be in perfection mode when done i'd say a mile if that
Thanks wheelbender. I hope to go out for a test drive on it next weekend. Just as soon as I finished building it, it starts to snow and get very cold.
So, the test drive got put off for a couple weeks, but, as soon as I see a little pavement, I'm off.
