Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2018

Looks like I will be giving a talk on bicycle maintenance at BRC Community College. Here is my tentative outline. What am I forgetting? 1 Overview of bicycle; components and systems – focus student on topic. 2 Introduction to the one-speed coaster-brake bicycle. 3 Fundamental use of tools – righty-t...

That would be a good scientific study, but is not realistic for me. However, I have asked a number of circumcised men, including a few here on ePlaya, and several reported that erection involves an element of discomfort, as if the skin is being over-stretched. Which it is! They seemed to accept this...

Re: Fixing/replacing Bottom bracket on huffy Cranbrook bike?

You are probably thinking of a "crank arm puller". This tool is used on three-piece cranks only. On a one-piece crank, you need a 15 mm open end wrench for the left pedal, and with some pedals this needs to be a fairly thin wrench -- not an adjustable one -- but also a strong one. You can of course ...

Here is another eBay box of ten bearings (5 bikes).

These are called #66 bearings.
#64 will also work, but are technically only for vintage Schwinn and a few other relics.

We must have done 200 crank bearing repairs last year, most of them on Huffy Crankbrokes. We ran out of new bearings after a couple days, and cannibalized our own bikes for bearings after that. I will look up a part number for those bearings. They often come in a box of 10 (for 5 bikes). This applie...
