surly track hub- up & down axle play
On the bike the wheel felt like the cones just needed to be tightened a little bit. once i took the wheel off i figured out that the axle play is not back and forth but up and down. even with the cones too tight the axle still wobbles a tiny bit up and down...
I donít think itís the newest surly hub so I donít think it has cartridge bearings but I know its sealed somehow and Iíve never looked in there. It doesnít seem like a bent axle because the pressure feels even all the way around. The only other thing I can think of is something wrong with the bearings, but itís nothing Iíve done because it had been working fine and it hasnít been opened since. can i get at those bearings with a mallet and punch?
any other ideas about what the problem is?
