Re: Guess I'm out for the season
Bought 2 hubs from "www.bicycle-engines.com", big company. The hubs cost $49.99 each, free shipping over $100 order, so bought two and a brake cable. Still the same today.
There are good videos on re-lacing wheels - U tube etc.
The hubs are HD with 2 sealed bearings on each side. The right side is threaded for cassette or freewheel sprocket or adapter.
Left side is threaded left hand and comes with freewheel adapter and a large sprocket of choice= the sprocket adapter goes nearest the spokes. The hub also comes with left side drum brake system and is threaded right hand thread for the brake.
Get some strong spokes and you will have a good setup.
They say redoing a wheel in not hard , they can do one in a 1/2 hour after practice.
Just revisited the bicycle wheel hub website. The hub is listed under 4 stroke chain drive. If you pedal start your engine the left side freewheel bearing would need to be "Tig welded" to lock it and then spot "tig welded" to the hub for starting the engine
There may be a solid non freewheel adapter with LH threads, but it would still need "Tig welded" to hub. A lock nut will not work, trust me!!
You have time to think it over with winter near.
Better spokes replaced one at a time and a hub clamp on adapter may be the easiest. Use a front fork or set bike upside down to adjust wheel straightness.
Seen some nice "lite weight" tire liners that seemed of "very tuff" material and feathered thin at edges, $6. ea. Wal Mart or Sports Academy.
