    105 front hub bearings

    I have a 15 year old or so, 105 front hub. Is that a serviceable hub? can I just take it apart and get the right size bearing and repck it?
    how hard is tensioning the hub afterwards?

    Yeah, it got's loose balls. www.parktool,com has the drill in the repair section. Cone wrenchs are good to have too.

    Most likely it's serviceable and a pretty easy job. For an idea about bearing selection, see:http://www.thethirdhand.com/index.cg...d=762002127479


    As mentioned by Sydney, a cone wrench is mandatory for holding the bearing cones. And you'll need a standard wrench to fit the locking nut that bears against the bearing cone. You must hold the bearing cone with the cone wrench when you loosen or tighten the locking nut. I have not looked at Park's hub instructions, but I trust it is complete. I've used their site for many repairs and their instructions are pretty decent.

    To make this post controversial, we could segue into the "best" grease to use.

    Just this week I rebuilt my hub, a shimnao 600 that was 16 years old. Ploped in new bearings without a problem. You will need a cone wrench, mine was 15mm, and an standard wrench, mine was 17mm for the locknut.

    Tensioning it was not too bad. The directions on park's site are good. It rolls better now then it did before.

    and to add some conterverial topics, I user park's polylube 1000 for the grease.
