Whew! I took apart my hubs on my Haro Mirra freestyle bike today at work, because they felt a bit "tight" and wouldn't spin freely. What a pain in the butt. Good lord. The factory grease sucked, it was like honey and half of it had been thrown out of the hub and onto the center of the axle anyway.
Both of my axles are 14 mm, and I took them out and upon inspection the front one is bent. What a pain in the batoot. lol.
The bearing balls themselves weren't too bad. The races were slightly grooved, but oh well. I put some Finish-Line Teflon Bearing Grease in there, and rebuilt em. Lets hope this time they last a bit longer.
Talk about a high-maintanance piece of junk... lol. I miss my sealed bearing easability and strength like the ones I had on my Enduro. Screw these Unsealed P O S's . heh.
what an evening.
