Hoo Koo E Koo front axle replacement part
#1
Hello,

My apologies for the simpleness of this question. I have a 1995 Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo that I need to replace the front axle on. How do I find what to buy to replace it? It is missing so I cannot look at the existing part for guidance.

Thanks!

great job with the pics! That it the original TSystem hub. The rear may be STX, Gary fisher/Trek always did that with their bikes.you will need the hollow axle, cones and bearings to repair it. If you have a Trek Store maybe they can help or a bicycle CO op in town may have a front hub to gut. there are a ton of them out there. Even ebay. I will do some digging around in my pile myself. I have a 1995 HooKoo e Koo, grateful Dead Edition that I am building up with 24spd Deroe LX groupo.
