    Don’t use acetone on these. Pretty sure it’ll hurt the Kevlar.

    I was about to put a nearly new SRF-3 hub on eBay, assuming there would be no interest on here. It was new when laced into a wheel for a new bike but never connected up. Anyone want it cheap for the parts? Can take some pics later.

    You’ve correctly identified that it should have an axle with shoulders. The bearings are a slide fit on the axle and a light press fit in the hub shell. You tighten the nuts hard up against the bearings on these.

    There’s a pretty good chance that most flip flop hubs use the same axles, because they’re mostly clones of each other and use the same bearings. But to be on the safe side you should get the same brand in case it’s not right. In your case though, it might be easiest to buy a whole identical hub, then you’ll get all the other bits you need ie set of bearings, lock nuts and proper track nuts. Bin the hub shell and put the cog and lock nut on eBay and it’ll cost about the same overall.

    I did wonder if this was the case!

    No, no, no. You're not quite doing this right.

    Actually, reading more about it, I might retract my comment. Looks like it's going ahead whatever and looks like it is in fact Liberty Media that DGAF as much as the shitty Brazilian government. Poor show.

    I don’t think you can blame F1 for that. That’s corrupt/DGAF government at work. Only have to look at their hardwood, steel and mineral industries for more examples.

    Brazilian Grand Prix was always on review anyway. Mercedes team bus got done over just a few years ago and they all had their valuables stolen at gunpoint. The teams hate Brazil.

    That’s good to know. I just took some personal details out of a pm when a sale fell through. Obviously that information could still be with the recipient if they had email notifications on.

    I’ll take an ONO if you’re interested as I’ll have to post them. I’m out in the western boonies.
