    When I picked up this Deliveri frame from @ind-chuckz I had other plans for it, but it just kind of headed this direction and I love it. Can't wait for some nice weather to get it out past the end of the block.

    I wasn't crazy about the name Deliveri so I borrowed the Tornado name off another straight-bar Schwinn. The "BX" part was borrowed from the Sting-Ray BX, a 1978-only bike that wasn't a BMX bike, but had BMX-inspired looks.

    The red band 2 speed is perfect on that bike.

    This is my first 2-speed and I'm STOKED. Shifts great but it squeals on braking. I'm tempted to rebuild it but I'm scared to death to mess it up.

    It should not squeal. Is there much side play ? Tire rubbing on frame ? Gotta keep them properly lubed and adjusted because replacement parts get expensive .

    Tire isn't rubbing, but there is just enough side play to make me wonder. I have looked up a bunch of resources on overhauling them, and the one that actually helped me understand the whole process from beginning to end is this one:

    https://www.sheldonbrown.com/sutherland/CB-IGH-3-bendix.pdf

    I'm a lot more comfortable following these directions step by step than trying to follow along with a video. Also, it described and named every part in a way that I could find it in the diagram and understand what to do with it. Just gotta work up the courage to tear into it, I guess.

    From what I have read, am I correct that it's a good idea to use heavy axle grease on the bearings, but a lighter grease (like white lithium grease) on the other internal parts?

    That is a good instruction manual. You might find some other stuff on google search. I did not find anything complete on Tube . There was a how to on this forum. You will need this tool : https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bendix-2-S...h=item3b2962511c:g:s4gAAOSwyi1a40oY:rk:1:pf:0 Like Sutherland says, high temp ( wheel bearing ) grease . Sold in auto stores for use on wheel bearings for disc brakes. That is what I prefer. The lithium will just mix together in use with the wheel bearing grease. But in a previous discussion here about this hub, a member said that he used lithium.
