I always grease the contact area whenever pressing in a bearing, or headset cups, or crown races, …..

Unless the manufacturer recommends loctite or other bonding agent…..

The bearings in a DT hub usually go in pretty good. What are you using to drift it in?

I just used a 1" socket, and it slid in nicely.

It pays to have to the right tools for the job :)

Anyone know if the ringle abba QR rear hub can be converted to a 10 or 12 thru axle? if so where can i get the parts? Suns website is not very infomative, no part numbers so your LBS has to call.

Ask him to post up a picture of his cruiser bike :thepimp:

All you need for riding is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.

Here is a more techy question….

I have a 2004 Norco Shore… complete with upside down Norco decal under the clear coat.

I am guessing because of the linkage, they run the cables through housing all the way from the shifter to the derailer. I try and not ride when it is wet… but that is pretty hard out here.

What can I put in the cable housing so that the lines don't get all gummed up with crap… or not shift properly because they are binding on the housing?

I have used road lube as it is quite liquidly and it flows better…but one rain… and it is done.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Lou!

Here's a question:
If I order a 450 pound spring for my Foes Fly and it takes 3 months, how long will a shock rebuild take for the same?
BTW, the 450 is just what the doctor ordered, but it just fits through the frame…..just
Gotta get ready for Whis
