333 half-devil hubs

Anyone have an idea where to find information on rebuilding old Shimano 3-speed hubs from the 1970s? They were on lowcost (Sears, Murray, Huffy) bikes, and often they are the only part of the bike that has not rusted into oblivion. [more inside]

Do I really have to cut through the lock?

Bicycle was locked outside (it's against the rules to bring it inside the apartment where I live). It rained, and the bicycle wasn't used for some time, and now the lock won't budge (it rusted, I think): key goes in, but doesn't turn. I tried WD-40 but it didn't work. Before I cut through the lock, are there any other solutions I could try?

When to change bicycle gears

How/when do you change gears on a multiple-speed bicycle? Out of the 21 gears, there are 11 or so useful/unique ratios. So, do you stay in in one front ratio and only use the rear-derailleur until you have to shift down, or do you shift through the all the available ratios, double-shifting when necessary.

Hitch on a 2007 Camry

Anyone have any experience with installing a hitch for use with a hitch bike rack on a Toyota Camry? I haven't had a chance to visit the dealer, but is there an official Toyota-sanctioned hitch for a 2007 Camry? The manual says it can tow 1000 lbs, so there's gotta be something. [more inside]

Bike tech help for the non-bike weenie.

I've resurrected my bike for the second time from the shed at my mom's to get back into riding regularly, but this time there is something wrong with the gear shifters. Bear with me as I try to explain inside as I know little about the nuts and bolts of bikes. I'm hoping the bike nerds of MeFi can help me diagnose the problem and give me an idea of how much it might cost to fix so that I can weigh repair with purchasing a new bike. [more inside]
