    A big thanks to Joel @ Blue Door Bikes, he has managed to strip down the hub preserving all lockrings & cogs. The axel got bent in the process but they are ordering a new one from Phil Wood and covering the cost. To say I am impressed with the service would be an understatement !

    Small issue...

    I purchased some Royce / TB14's off @andyp for the Gangsta, lovely wheels....but, when offering up the rear I have noticed that the diameter of the axel is greater than that of the track end ?? not a lot (1mm or so)...If I sand / file this down am I going to run into issues with other wheels ?

    As for progress, Matt now has the forks (V Brake bosses to be added)
    New wheels purchased and Everything bar the seatpost is waiting to be fitted.

    Wow thanks, pretty comprehensive...sounds like I am not the first person to have trashed a wheel before removing the lockring and cog

    I think i'll will go down the LBS route,

    I'd like to keep the Phil Hub, Cog's & Lock ring's intact if possible....

    Cheers for the suggestions though

    So I have an issue,

    When my last bike got totalled the insurance co came to pick up the bits..not really thinking I just snipped the spokes to save the hub and cogs / lock rings.

    So now I have a hub with 2 cogs and 2 lockrings stuck fast

    I am thinking that I am going to need a vice to hold the hub to undo the lockrings and rotafix off the cogs ?

    Anyone have any cunning cheats ?
