it was a machine manufacturing error thats all that will happen theres nothing that will break and its not bad bearings. so not to fret over..
take a sparkplug 3/4 make sure that the back willfit inside the freewheel of the cog and no axle is there it might need a little hammer tap to get the six sided part down in there make sure u dont mind scratching outside of socket then u need a pipe wrench or good table vise and grip socket turning wheel counter clockwise for it to thread off the hub..
If it screws on then it is a freewheel not a cassette. They are not the same. There is a link in my comment. Your spacer kit with one sprocket was probably for cassette / freehub. It is not going to work. I suspect you can find a freewheel single speed conversion. You need a single speed freewheel - not a sprocket and a lockring.
Details found here: http://productinfo.shimano.com/specifications.html Spoke Hole P.C.D. Left/Right (mm) 45 Flange distance (mm) 57.9 Dish (mm) 8.4 Based on these figures, I would calculate the following values for your chosen Spoke Length Calculator: Centreline to Left flange: 37.35mm Centreline to Right flange: 20.55 Spoke hole diameter is not given. ...
Might be useful to check if the skewer is tightened properly too. See that a lot in the shop when customers bring their bikes back saying the wheel pulls to one side when they brake. They also have disc brakes, hence why it pulls to one side. :)
For the most part, no. The main problem is that you don't brake for very long compared to a normal battery charging cycle, so regenerative braking doesn't match the battery very well. Some systems use supercapacitors because they're designed for this sort of situation, but those are expensive and heavy in a bicycle application. Motors also typically don't ...
Check out the Stealth Hub from True Precision Components; as opposed to using pawls these hubs use a roller clutch. They are completely silent when the coast, the engagement is instantaneous and the cost is astronomical ;) I recently built myself a new rear wheel for my singlespeed mountain bike using one of these and really enjoy coasting in silence. ...
I have on my Kona Unit 2013 the stock "Formula DC52" - it's very quiet.
It depends on the type of hub, but most commonly you'll need a 15mm and 17mm cone wrench. A picture of the hub would be helpful.
I've seen this done and mostly work out ok, but I still wouldn't recommend it for the commented reasons. If do want to attempt to reuse the spokes, you'll need to buy a hub with as close to the same flange size as possible. If you go with a wider flange, you'll end up with spokes poking through your rim that you'll need to cut and possibly rethread. If ...
Here in interior Alaska, we use Mag1 Lubriplate. It's been in heavy use here for years and is time proven answer to the suggestions of many companies that haven't worked. I run it in my headsets, my pedals, my hubs, freehubs and bottom bracket. At -40F every little bit helps. It also regularly reaches 80F here in the summer and I've never seen any issues ...
