Thumbs up

Hey, can one substitute Wild Turkey instead of the Taquela and get the same effect ?
Gents, I ran all right hand threaded spinner on my GT for 6yrs and I had only one occasion when a wheel loosened. That was my fault as I was shy with the lead hammer. A little inti-sieze and let 'er rip with the hammer. You can tell when you hit the end as it has a different feel. I bought new wheels from Vintage Wheels last year and they came with two right and two left. David is right on about it making no difference on thread direction.
I always make sure my nuts are secure.

You might want to post this...this...theory...of yours on the "Spinners" thread Mr. Buttrick started on all Cobra Talk. Personally, I know from personal experience that given enough tequilla and a dance floor...centrifugal force does in fact work.

As for my "theory" I am gladly standing by for any holes you want to poke into it! I am most willing to be educated.


ps. BTW, centrifugal force is an IMAGINARY force...it doesn't really exist. Don't drink too much tequila as you think about that one

Actually, I have no doubt what you say is true. As a matter of fact, I find that gravity is a rather fleeting concept. I feel light on my feet.
