Hi Rupert,

Its good to hear you are getting around the snags. i finally got the photo to upload so here it is.
the hex bar is across the hub rim.
If it has been made before, it can be made again.

Many thanks for the pics, that's excellent, above and beyond the call of duty!
I've ordered rims and spokes, wm3 19 for the rear, WM1 21 for the front, both as per standard on B25. Thanks for confirming that that shouldn't present any problems.
Rupert.

Hi Rupert,
Eventually got out for a spin after changing both wheel bearing sets and it runs lovely and smooth now.
Definite recommend the Dragonfly replacement taper bearings.
