Hub Cleaning

Well that wasn't bad at all. I can't believe I've been putting that off for so long. 

There were sub-components that I could've disassembled further, but the hub was really pretty clean. There wasn't any of that resin-type gunk built up, so I just took the main hub bits out, cleaned them up and bit and put fresh grease in there. 

It was easy. Of course who knows if it will still shift or if it will brake right or if it sticks or something else. We'll see.

Tomorrow: crush the rear drop outs and build the wheel.

I should be rolling by tomorrow night or Saturday.

John you make it look so easy.

John: "Hey, Hank, hand me that spoke wrench."

Hank: "The what?"

John: "The thing with the yellow handle."
