I recently acquired a 2001 GT zr3000 road bike which had a sticky 105 front hub. it was smooth fot 3/4 of the revolution, and barely moved in the other quarter. I pulled the hub apart suspecting a bent axle, but it is totally straight. The cones, races, and bearings all appear to be in good condition. One side had nine bearings, the other had 10. Most newer wheels i have found to have 10 per side. I went ahead and added the extra bearing to the side with 9, cleaned it up real good and put it back together only to find that it is now worse than it was before. Same problem, but it also has some bearing pop sometimes. are 105 hubs supposed to have 9 per side? if not, any other ideas?
thanks in advance
