Play In Rear Hub
#1
ok now the rear hub is playing up  Sad just a big long list of stuff to fix  Big Grin

the rear hub has quite a bit of play in it, the axle moves around in the shelling.  This hub has been constantly sealed by a metal seal and rubber dust seal so i dont think any think has got in there.  ive tried tighetening it up but it feels as tight as it can go yet there is still play.

any ideas?

Only way to find out is to strip it down. My guess is the races are fooked. Is it still spinning smooth, or can you hear/feel any grinding?

nope spins for ages and is smooth, the front hub made a noise like it had stones for bearings so this is why i thought it may of been different Undecided

Sounds like the races have worn away then, and if you can't tighten the cones any more there is nothing else you can do apart from replace. This is why iwill never buy a cup and cone hub again. My front bearings gave up a few weeks ago, and it took less than 10 minuets and £2.50 to replace them 8) Have a hunt around on fleebay for anything with cartridge bearings. If you can't afford Hope, Halo, Da Bomb and DMR are also very good.

Steve, you'll need to check your spoke lengths to make sure you can get away with just a hub change. If your talking about hubs spokes & wheel building you'll probably be best buying a whole new wheelset as a cheaper option.

DT Swiss website has a spoke calculator

Chainreaction has a wheel deal at the moment ... <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=10790">http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=10790</a><!-- m -->
