  • Rear wheel bearing removal frustration

    I cannot for the life of me get this bearing out. Trying to swap my spoked 1600 wheel to a 1700 cast wheel. I have hammering away for over two hours. Can I get some suggestions? Please?

    I even tried heating the outer area where the bearing seats with a MAP torch. No Go.

    Try using a little more heat on the wheel, then spray WD-40 just on the bearing, then start hammering. Don't breathe the vapors when spraying the WD.
    You might want to get western with it!

      You need to swap collars not actual wheel bearings when switching from spoke to cast wheel...

      The toothed part of the pulley stays with bike. The pulley hubs can be swapped with the wheels and all would be good.

      The roller bearing in the hub is the only thing that needs changed. The spacers on the outside are the same.

      The only issue is the mushroom head the 1600 pulley roller bearing has. The 1700 pulley roller bearing doesnt have this built in spacer.

        The wheel I bought was missing the bearing seal and the tapered bearings were exposed and damaged. I was removing the bearing outer race from the hub.

        Now…Do I need to replace with the OEM bearing that came from that wheel originally or order the 2 bearings that would fit the 1600 wheel that I thought would fit this cast wheel? Then I could just put back together like it was the original 1600 spokes wheel?

          My 1700 cast wheel did not come with anything that looks like the picture shows. Just exposed tapered bearings and the outer bearing race….
