You'll need a wheel bearing puller. Harbor freight. And you'll need new bearings as they usually get destroyed. Pretty easy really.

Maybe you could make friends with "Spell Check". Anyway, are you sure you want to actually powder coat the actual bearings?

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Not powder coating the bearings?? The rims but I need to remove the bearings first. Just looking for the trick.

Tom was just asking a question, man.I don't think he was being an ass hole. The thing about the internet is things get taken wrong and out of context and people get upset for no reason

If you decide to stick around on this forum for at least a year or so you will clearly read some of the very interesting things that some people will ask instructions on including powder coating strange items on the bike that are mechanical and tend to wear. It seems that for every group of Newbies joining during any given time period there are a few "*******s!" When we ask for more information that usually lets us know which category certain people fall into. Sorry if asking for a clarification from you was such an insult. That was not the intent.
