Hub Noise. Noob attempts hub overhaul.
I have a 2006 bianchi volpe. I purchased a used set of mavic open pro rims on ultegra hubs for this bike. I'm guessing they are circa 2002. I decided to overhaul the hubs for a fun project. I removed the cones and bearings. degreased, cleaned, and took to the LBS. They said the cups, cones and bearing were in good shape.
I repacked the hubs with teflon grease. When i spin the rear wheel i get a clicking sound from the rear hub. It sounds like bearings clicking together. If i turn the wheel in a horizontal postion while it is spinning the clicking stops. Any idea what is causing this ?
other things to note. when i opened the rear hub i noticed the back left dust cover(plastic) was cracked. Also i'm pretty sure I got degreaser in my freehub mech, b/c it ticks much louder now.
Any help would be much appreciated.
