  10. Hey, love your videos. I had a question. Can you recommend a generic "kit" that would contain nuts bolts and washers for your everyday bike.

  11. We use elbow grease no ultra sonic here

  12. Bikeman – how many ball bearings in the front and back for each side?

  13. Bikeman – how many ball bearings go in the front axle and how many go in the rear axle? Is the number of bbs the same for front and rear, or different? Also will the size of the ball bearing be the same in front and rear? Thanks 🙂

  14. hey bikeman im kind of new to bike building and ran into a problem , the thing is i was removing a striped axle and installing a new one but the thing is now i want to add a new chrome rear sproket , will my local bike shop be able to replace the clutch and driver and shoes on my coaster wheel ? is that a easy job and how much do you think is would cost about ballpark ?

  16. Nice job big guy

  17. I'm workin on it keep your pants on.. with a little luck sometime tomorrow.. Just kidding on the pants thing…thx for your comment

  18. I cant find parts 4, 5 ,and 6 did this get stolenLOL!

  19. You forgot to mention a important point to people who have a quick release lever on the front wheel. You have to leave the adjustment a little loose to compensate for the tightening of the quick release lever. If you make it perfect and then tighten the quick release lever the hub is going to be too tight.

  20. Mr Bikeman, how do you know if it is time to repack the hubs…on my vintage Raleigh that's 30 years old the hubs still seem to spin smoothly…would I see a benefit from the overhaul?

  21. I'm really excited for the 3-speed hub part. I took an old Shimano 3-speed apart a couple weeks ago and it took me forever to get back together. Guys at the local shop told me I was out of luck and didn't want to touch that mess. I'd like to see how a pro does it.

  22. Curse a little than try try again XD

  23. how much you askin for i t when its done.?

  24. Bravo, Bravo!, Bikeman. Thanks for the fun…
