How To Replace A Bent Axle On A Bike Wheel

Posted by on in Hubs


I demonstrate how to change out a bent axle from the rear wheel of a mountain bike I was working on. The wheel seemed out of true, but after looking closer, I realized the axle was bent. The wheel had a weird wobble. I took apart the hub, cleaned all the parts, replaced the bent axle with a new one, lubed everything and put it all back together.

Dualco Mini Grease Gun:

Park Tool Spoke, Bearing, and Cotter Gauge – SBC-1:
