    So my treadmill stops suddenly on it's own when I walk on it. At first I thought it was because I have gained some weight and maybe I am too heavy for it. My feelings were really crushed. But then I realized that my son has been running on it. And so I notice that if I run on it it does not suddenly stop. It works just fine. I don't understand this.

    • RJ The Bike Guy

      Coaster brake. That is not what most people want for a single speed. And if I was going to replace the wheel, I could have put a single speed wheel on there. But that is not cheap.

    A free twig - shut up and take my money. Funnily enough I recently had someone at work argue with me that Rehook was a brilliant idea and I was a idiot if I didn't buy one. He doesn't ride a bike, but I do and I just pointed out that my whole drive train is narrow wide and I couldn't recall the last time I dropped a chain - but if it did then I would just use the twig trick to do the same as the ripoff product he saw on Dragons Den and on which apparantly some idiots stumped up lots of cash to back making something I nor any sensible bike rider just doesn't need. Anyway - I'm looking forward to the when Park Tool release the TW-1G Combination Tyre Lever/MasterLink Plier/Rehook Tool and charge $50

    If it drops, try your front derailleur, or reach down and lift it back on. Otherwise stop and use your Richard bashers. Ta dah. Instant. Now adjust your limit screws closer in. Unless it's a 55 to a 20 something chain ring.

    My home made tool is the front derailleur. Several years ago my chaing dropped, bent, etc, I had to walk 5km to go home. Then, I have set the derailleur properly, not a single chain drop since that. The idea is nice BTW, if the chain decides to drop anyway.

    Very nice! video Thank you! Been working on couple of little bit older bikes with coaster brakes and both have similar problem that when I stop pedaling it doesn't always go smoothly to the coaster mode, it sort of "yanks" the pedals a bit. Been wondering what causes that. After watching this video I suspect the clutch spring might have something to do with it, not releasing the clutch straight away. Have to check that again. The cut away hub really showed well how it works!

    I suggest trying a product called CRC Freeze Off, sold at most automotive parts and supply stores. It is an aerosol that drops the temperature of a given part coupled with penetrating oil. The idea is the rapid contraction causes the corrosion to fraction and the penetrating oil to get into areas it wouldn't be able to otherwise. I recently purchased a very rare vintage steel bike with an extremely frozen stem and damaging the fork in any way was not an option as finding a replacement would be next to impossible. The stem was a 3ttt record in very good shape and I preferred to try to save it. I read about success from other with the CRC Freeze off and within 30 seconds of spraying the around base of the stem where it went into the fork steerer, it broke loose. This product is a game changer. I've had several worst case frozen stems and seatposts I had to cut out and based on how well it worked with this particular bike, I'm confident it will work in most cases.
