i think yahoo mail is corrupting my posts again, so sorry in advance. j ay, i think you can lace just the non-drive side to a rim and get enough le verage to remove the freewheel. did i read that on sheldon's site or make it up? anyone tried it?

Well boys and girls, I just did something so incredi bly idiotic I can

only laugh at myself, in a sad sort of way. In the past I have been

amazed when I have seen or heard of somebody doing this same exact

thing. How dumb can you get, I remember thinking. After 40 plus

years of working on bicycles I finally did it.

Here goes, I'll just blurt it out.....I cut a hub out of a wheel befo re

I took the freewheel off. There, I said it.

Yup. St upid, huh. Go ahead, laugh, get it over with......okay,

done?? No w comes the advice part. Any suggestions on how to get the

darn fre ewheel off without having to lace it into a hub again? For

some rea son I am not getting any hits when I do an archive search, so I

turn to the collective wisdom.

I have been riding and working on fr eehubs for so long that in my haste

I forgot I was working on a freew heel hub.

Thanks for any help or references.
