    Overhaul Campy Eurus Hubs (frequency, self vs LBS)?

    I've been riding a set of Campagnolo Eurus wheels for about 2 years now and was wondering if it's about time that I overhaul the hubs? There's nothing wrong with them, they run smooth and quietly.

    Is there a certain frequency that I should be doing this?

    And is it difficult to do? I don't know what my LBS charges, but if they charge $50 for adjusting derailleurs and brakes, then I'm assuming they charge too much.

    I don't know what Campy recommends specifically, but as a general rule I shoot for around 3,000-5,000 miles for any loose ball hubs from any manufacturer. I'm not very good at tracking mileage though, so I generally just do them once a year if it's a wheelset I ride often. If you ride a lot in wet or dirty conditions, you probably want to do them more often (though the Campy hubs I've used are pretty well sealed).

    As for level of difficulty, if your wheels have Record-style bearing adjustment, they are about as easy as a non-cartridge hub can be (no cone wrenches needed). But I still wouldn't call it simple if you've never serviced a loose-ball hub before.

    Every 2500 to 3000 miles for cup and cone. Usually an easy job.
    If they are radial (cartridge) bearings I would pull the dust seals and clean and re-grease at about 5000 miles.
