Re: Tools. What is absolutely necessary?
I am certain a high percentage of coaster Brake owners who do there own bearings are not using cone wrenches. Proper cone nut tension is essential for correct assembly of coaster brakes.
Cone wrenches do not have to be top of the line and can be had for a reasonable price.
My point is, use the right tool for the right job. Cone wrenches should be a required tool for safety reasons alone.
