Wheel bearings

Guys do you have to have a press to do the wheel bearings on the RDO7 gold rims?

You can generally just tap them out with a long punch and a hammer

IF you heat the HUB first.

I still haven't had to replace my RIM bearings yet

Same thing...a bit of heat...a plumbers torch works best. It takes a bit but can't really get hot enough to do any damage except to paint if you keep it in one place too long.

The new bearing will almost fall right in. Don't forget the spacer if there is one since you'll ruin the new bearing getting it out again. If heat isn't enough, use the old bearing to tap in the new one by placing it on top and taping on the outer race only. You can even put the new bearing in the freezer for maximum shrinkage.

You can tap out the old bearings from their inner race since they are not going to be used again. Never do this to a new bearing

+1 on using both heat and cold. Grease the bearings first. Pop them in the freezer for at least a few hours. Heat the hub and you can pretty much push them in by hand. You might need a little gentle persuasion (rubber mallet). It works great.

Use a Kettle with boiling water to heat the hub is another way. And no flame-damage risk.

Very good idea. I often use the oven to heat parts.....and get some very strange looks and comments about my cooking skills!

Kitchen's are great for spannering:

Oven - for heating parts
Fridge / Freezer - for cooling parts
Dishwasher - for cleaning parts
Sofa - for relaxing and admiring your spannering
Gaggia - for sustenance

I can see an all new Jamie Oliver tv series "Cooking with my AT'.

I've had my Montesa trials bike in the kitchen before; fun getting it up the steps and through the front door (and only to be undertaken when the MRs is out of town). But an @. That takes the cake!!

I think those were a set of BMW 1200GS bars that I was trying out at the time, but they were far too heavy.

I've been using a set of Pro Taper Pastrana FMX bars for the past 18 months - perfect for me.
