Ron,

LOL I don't wear my emotions on my shirt sleeves so your okay on this end Ron. It would take more then a few words to desolve the friendship we've made over the last weeks.

Now you want to talk about dummies. I almost had the Batavus sealed bearing modification for the hub ready for post when I caught myself about to make a mistake. I made a spacer tube for between the bearings that the treaded rod axle would slide through and then discovered that if I assembled it as is, that I would have no way to disassemble it. The solution was to make a treaded tube so you could hammer on the treaded rod to knock one set of bearings out. I asked myself why on God's green earth would Batavus use a treaded rod axle that was 12mm-1.0mm. I can't find taps let alone nuts to fit this thread. It must be a bicycle standard. So in a scramble to denounce my dummy status I'm using 12mm-1.75mm threaded rod. I should have this project completed by this coming weekend. Next on the list will be the shaving of the Batavus head.

If it ain't broke, you're not trying hard enough.
