Ah Yes Kids, Alls Well that Ends Well.

But Elliot, Q: I have an ancient Shimano 3-spd hub off a trike that is frozen. Rebuild or buy a new one?

Rebuilt involves time & heat and that means fire - not a bad thing - but what is melty up in that hub????

New one means parting w/ a hundy or so.

Hey Kill, When I was young we had a carnival come thru town which had a freak show. Scared the hell out of me. The always had this guy who could push eyes out like balloons. That scared me the most.

...

I took one of those apart once -- though it was probably its ancestor the Sturmey-Archer. And I found that numerous watches had given their life -- and tiny cogs -- to make it.

Less fancifully worded: The gear-shifting is accomplished with tiny planetary gear-sets.

Some of these hubs -- maybe all -- had oil cups, so I suppose the factory lubricant was somewhat liquid. But what is in there now....

Were it me, I might soak the whole hub in a bucket of kerosene or diesel or such. Maybe agitate once in a while, and change the hub's orientation -- all in the hope that the solvent will find its way in where it may do some good.

But with my skills, I would not open it. YMMV

It appears most of our core team is in from the DGS... will be sure soon.

So, with this, we are now confident of SIDESHOW being there for it's FINALE year, along with Midnight Popcorn Palace.. and with luck, in the 3:00 plaza!!!

As always Correct. Corndogs are the Peoples Food. Oven mitts a Peoples Essential. Major Krash,showing his long and true Revolutionary credentials,should be commended for seeing this obvious Truth and presenting it for frank and candid discussion..

Comrades! What other camp of Proletarian Toilers and Strugglers has had an entire Burning Man theme presented in their honor? Surely this proves that the Socialist Path is the path to follow. Our camp in 2015,inspired by this historic achievement, vows to surpass every goal in the One Week Plan and humbly strive to emulate Carnivals Service to The People of BRC. So it is written...........
