When I take the front wheel off and turn the hub skewer, It feels rough and almost gritty. The seals on the bearings look good and the bile has less than 1000 miles on it. When I place the tire on the ground and apply pressure to the skewer as I turn it, it seems somewhat smoother. Is This normal, can I replace the bearings or is a new hub needed?
Also when I am riding in a high gear ratio and pushing down hard on the pedals I hear a clicking noise which I believe is the chain rubbing on the front derailleur. I can't adjust the derailleur with out making things worse. Does this mean my crank bearings are bad or is it just caused by flex in sub par components?
