The bushing is one of the most important bicycle knotsAny model. The quality of this element determines the efficiency of transport, which is important for the cyclist, who spends his own energy when driving.

In this case, the front bushing has a simpler design than the rear hub, since it has to withstand heavy loads.

Therefore, repair of the rear bushing is required more often.



During the assembly of the rear bushing,That the right and left ends of the axis are different. The right is fixed to the axis by means of a lock nut, after which it is never removed from it. Therefore, all adjustments are made by the left cone. Do not confuse which side of the bushing you need to insert the axis with the right cone.


Lay the bushings and bearing cups in the bodyBoth sides of a new, thick grease, then use the tweezers to take the balls and press them into it. The lubricant layer must be thick enough that the balls can not roll out of the bushing.


On the right side of the rear bushing, place the balls on the ballsWasher and insert the shaft with the right cone. Do this carefully. Otherwise, you risk losing the balls that can fall out of the bearing cup from the opposite side.


Screw the left cone onto the shaft, but do not tighten it in any way. After that, put on the washers and screw the lock nut.


Now you need to adjust the bearings. To do this, ensure the axis is stationary. Call an assistant who will help you keep the right cone from turning, and you will adjust the left cone at this time. In the absence of an assistant, tighten the right cone locknut into the vice, but do this carefully so as not to deform the nut and bushing.


Tape the left cone with the cone wrenchTo the stop, but not tightening it, and releasing it by 45 degrees. After this, hold the key with a wrench, tighten the lock nut. All this time, the axis of the sleeve must remain stationary.


If everything is done correctly, the axis will be easyRotate, without any jamming. However, it should not have a large backlash. If a backlash or jamming is detected, unscrew the lock nut and tighten or loosen the cone.


At the end of the adjustment, fit the anthers and check the rotation of the wheel, which must be rotated without any effort, only under the weight of the pin.
