BALLOON:   BENDIX 2 SPD LOOSE BALL REPLACEMENT OF CAGE BEARINGS posted by: will on 5/12/2007 at 8:46:23 PM
Has any body ever overhauled a red 2 spd kickback hub and used loose ball bearings instead of the stock cage/bearings? I just overhauled mine and it works great just wondering if there is any benifit to using loose ball.

thanks, Will

The bearing cage won't break and give you grief because now there is not one in there, you added an extra bearing or two I take it? Can't imagine any problem with this.

MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Info - Edward K. Tryon Trusport Bicycle posted by: Lane on 5/12/2007 at 5:09:10 PM
I have just piked up a 26 inch middleweight bicycle. I saw it at the landfill scrap pile and picked it up before the landfill watch could stop me. Name badge Trusport by Edward K. tryon co. Phila, PA. It appears to be 20's or 30's ?
It is complete, missing only the stand. I have english roadsters and don't know a lot about older bicycles. It has what appear to be wood and steel wheels with tube-tire as one. The front holds air the rear leaks. Nice old bike. looks tohave been sitting in a garage somewhere. Any info would be appreciated. It's available or I'll hang it in the shed.
Thanks, Lane
