    It's a lot easier on aluminum than a hardened chromoly hub spindle, but might still be worth a try...
    I had beter either get a pro to do this, or at least use the proper tool so I don't make it worse.

    I thought this was going to have my uni out of commision for a day or two as I put in new bearings etc. Now this could take longer and I have to waste time running around looking for the solution.

    My other practice uni really sucks in comparison to the KH, an old chrome learner with square taper cranks, no Q factor. I think the whole thing flexes under my weight. Definitley nowhere near as enjoyable to use.

    Eventually will have to acquire a spare equivalent uni so I can continue practicing if the other one breaks.
