I have yet to listen to it. I can't comment on it or recommend it. I just discovered it and thought I would share this with the group here.
| I need some advice, "tips of the trade", pointers and/or other bits of knowledge regarding the service of my FW hub. The hub I have is dated 1965 and has been fitted into an AW shell on my club style bike. Shifts and runs well under 95% of all conditions. I have a slight scrapping sound that is present under coasting or light pedal pressure. I have plans to remove the hub and do a thorough inspection for damaged parts or grit in the bearings. Anything you think I should look for would be appreciated. Thx in advance, Thom.|
| Could be the sound of the pawls, is it well oiled?|
| Keith- Thanks for your input. I've studied Sheldon's site and Tony Hadlan's site for details on the hub. I like to think that I've used enough oil on it but may be not. When I remove the wheel, probably tomorrow evening, I'll check it in my truing stand to see if it makes the same noise(s). This should indicate whether or not the drop-outs are out of alignment or if it is indeed inside the hub. I'm quessing that one or more of the pawls has a missing or out of alignment spring etc. I'll let you all know what I find. Thx again, Thom. |

Very interesting machine for certain... and even if only half as old as the sellor claims... it's in remarkable condition.
Larry "Boneman" Bone - cool stuff everywhere....
| Interesting, unusual and rare perhaps?|
Not my sort of machine but quite a find. Very European and not English.
Matthew - driving on the left (the right side)
| Gone now for silly money. Looked german, early 1950's Simplex gear cage upside down.|
| Silly money indeed. I googled "Sigurd bicycle" and pretty much came up completely empty.|
Larry "Boneman" Bone - I'm not THAT silly!
