Removal of bearings?

Postby CrossCombo » September 28th, 2014, 10:26 am

Hello guys,

First of all I just want to say that I’m really happy with the wheels I bought in May 

But unfortunately I have a problem with the rear hub, or the bearings I presume. At today’s ride I notices some noise from the rear wheel and after removing the hub I could feel that the wheel didn’t spin as smooth at it used to do. I guess that the bearings are busted… (maybe a little early than I would expect from ceramic bearings)

I search your forum how to remove the bearings but I came up empty. Do you have a tutorial somewhere?

To my questions:

Is it possible for me to do a service on the bearings instead of buying new ones?
If buying new, do you provide with that or can you recommend a shop (preferable in Europe that have the bearings requested)?

Thank you and keep up the good work guys!

I would like to know the procedure to replace bearings of rear hub as well.
update: this might help: . before finding this link i have already had a go at tapping the axle with a plastic hammer, but with no effect. i will have another go at disassembly.

Thanks in advance!
