Friction: Sealed Hub vs Loose Bearing Hub
I've just entered the 21st Century and got a bike with Mavic Ksyerium wheels. They seem to have more friction than my old Campy Nuovo Records from 1980. Is there anything I can do ?? I used to rebuild my old hubs and get them perfectly adjusted for minimun rolling resistance, but when I give these wheels a light spin, they seem to stop too soon. It's late, and I was just messing with the hub trying to fix a problem with the cassette (see other post), and wondered about this too.
Doesn't seem that these are meant to be serviced much ... not easy to get the hub body off and on elegantly. Maybe I'm missing something.
