• Sorry, looked around for earlier threads on this but couldn't find any.

    I have received a new set of Phil Wood sealed bearing cartridges, but I am stuck trying to figure out how to undo the current bearings. On the photo below you can see a spacer that's perfectly smooth so can't be wrenched out. Inside the spacer there is a hex key pattern, but with no way of applying resistance to the spline I just end up spinning it endlessly. There was an identical (?) spacer on the other side that came off without force.

    Any suggestions as to the next step?

  • Put some Allen keys in the holes, I can’t remember the size, 8mm perhaps. Might be smaller on the front hub, you might need one on either side depending on how tightly they are
