So my wheel wasn’t running free for any length of time no matter how loose or tight the bolts were on the bearing cap so i took it to the LBS to see if the mechanic could help any. He discovered that one of the bearing holders was bent and he thought that he could straighten it by inserting it and bending it while inserting the straight one, or something. All i know is he broke the bearing and had to order another one. However he was left with the entral section of the bearing stuck on the axle…he thinks he can weld a washer to it and pull it with a bearing puller that way, but he’s not sure.
Can you let us know the name of the bike shop. Just to make sure that no one else ever takes a unicycle there. Sounds like a scary place to me, and not somewhere that I would ever want one of my unicycles to end up!
