rear rim problem help!!! - July 20, 2009, 11:18 AM

ok so i just changed my tires, and come to find a problem in my rear rim. when i went to take the axle out it was abnormally tight i had to drive the axle out the entire way out. changed tires cleaned and regreased inside but now having same problems with rear rim. axle wont go through in the rear rim. axle appears strait, bearing intact. axle will not even slide through the rim off the bike. any suggestions.

Any corrosion?
That's my guess as to why it was hard to remove.
Is the axle galled now?

Mike, yesterday I forgot to tell you to take some light sand paper to clean up the axle. Just like Steve says, it could just be corrosion.

Galling is a process that causes friction when metal parts like nuts and bolts are rubbed together among the high spots on the surface. The friction in turn generates heat and causes the asperities or high points to weld together. It is not the same as cold welding. This is common in metals like steel, where the stainless steel oxide surface breaks down due to direct metal contact. It in consequence leads to solid-phase welding.

Galling causes surface damage and seizing as well as freezing up of the equipment. Galling occurs due to the pressure building up between the thread surfaces of the bolts and nuts in question. Thus it refers to the damage caused to the surfaces of metals due to the sliding contact with each other. Apart from steel this phenomenon is also seen in metals like aluminium alloys and titanium. Galling causes clumps of one part to stick to the other part and break away from the original surface.

My suggestion, get new bearings and axle and be done with it.

thanks B for the sand paper trick. so after finding that it was the left bearing that wouldn't allow the axle to pass through smoothly i took it out cleaned and sanded it til it felt nice and smooth on the inside. after not working the first time i called a few shops and nobody had a left bearing in stock so i went back home this time taking 220 grit and went at it again. now it works. corrosion sure is a bitch didn't even look like it had any nor did i feel any inside the bearing.
