Quick Hub Swap

If you have two wheels of the same size, but you want to switch their hubs, say because you want to have a coaster hub instead of a five cog free wheel in a single speed conversion, here is what to do:

Tape the spokes on each rim so they can't shift anymore.

Unscrew the spokes either by hand or with a drill.

Give that rim a good cleaning.

Take apart the other rim in the same way.

Swap the hubs.

Put the wheels back together, tightening the spokes by hand and then true them.
