Poodle, or anyone else in the know, how risky is it letting a kid travel to Japan with regards to food safety after Fukushima. So much miss information out there. One saving grace, kid is a vegetarian so won’t be consuming fish.

My eldest child is going to Japan in May with school Japanese class. Nothing has been mentioned in any planning meeting for the trip. To be honest, I hadn't even thought about it anyway, I have no issue.

@link1896 don't fear the reaper. I mean I wouldn't eat any of the wild harvest pork from Fukushima, but you'll struggle to come across food from that area. Also as far as I have seen most seafood now comes from the west coast and accompanied by a "from sea of Japan" type noyice. I think the Fukushima and east coast fleet were wiped out. The foreigners I know who live here say food is safe, it's farmed a long way from ground zero, and Fukushima is a bit over stated. I've been through there and didn't gain any additional baldness, though I do have a funny patch of skin showing through my back hair...

The smart traveller gov site still has the heavy handed intel though, and they are the professional body so I defer to them. I'm just a visitor full of my own ideas.

Does that black ring underneath the handle have any notches in it? I had a set like that where that black ring was a threaded insert that held the handle on from underneath. Needed a sort of forked tool with right angle tips to undo, PITA for sure. (I only bought the set to get some weird size valve extension I couldn't find anywhere else and din't have time/materials to make...)

I was going to say a small bearing puller would do it, but you can't get it onto the centre of the shaft.

Maybe one of the propellers was acting as a grub screw?

Small angle grinder or hack saw along the hub...?...but obviously destructive - not sure if you're keeping them?

...and check for a circlip at the back too...?

No circlip...

Bingo! Two notches.

Angle grinder ftw!

Can someone link me to replacement pf92 bearings?

Or should just spend a bit on a Wheels Mfg threaded BB and be done with it?

My inspection found a notchy bearing, but before that it was running silently.

If I was replacing PF anyway I would definitely go the threaded BB but that’s just every PF I ever had squeaked eventually. Fitted the threaded BB option no more dramas ever.

The Hope threaded bb is the better setup. I've got the Hope tool you can borrow.

I'll keep that in mind. What sways you towards Hope?

Is the tool 100% needed or will a Park Tool get it done? I have access to a full workshop of Park Tools if I speak nicely to the right person

@Cardy George What cranks are you using? If GXP I can drift the bearings out of my Slash Frame and send them on for you?
This will catch me some hell because I don't mind PF systems, but I'll say it anyway. I've never had creaking issues with BB92 (the Praxis threaded kit I used fixed a creak on BB30 cups) but BB92 cups are pretty cheap and durable and quick to switch out. I'm guessing yours isn't making noise, just a notchy bearing, and you've had the bike for how long now?

SRAM and Shimano BB92 cups cost all of $30 and do the job brilliantly.

With the Hope tool, you actually need the Hope tool, as the threads are "inside" the cup, so it turns more like a socket or cassette retention ring, than a BB "outside" tool.
