After my ride the other day, I noticed that there was a big blob of grease on the axel of my hub. I had noticed this before on more than one occasion, thinking that it had come from the road. Well, I'm stumped, because I dont see where its coming from, but it keeps reappearing. Is my hub shot?
I was thinking that if it is, I would replace the whole wheelset with 700c wheels. (I have an older bike w/ 27" wheels) that means, however, that I need a new hub that is compatible with a freewheel (five speed, 120mm DO) Where can I get this?
