First about the roller brake. I have notice it is getting VERY noisy. To the point it sounds like metal on metal scraping if I squeeze the brake enough. Is this just a sign that it needs oiling or of an impending failure? It is a used bicycle and I do not know it's history. I have put around 1200km on it in just under 3 months and have done no maintenance yet.
On the hub itself. I plan on replacing it as it clearly has a problem. Every other gear feels like it's grinding sand and there is a noticeable squeak. The others feel and work just fine. It was having shifting problems but I have it adjusted and that took care of that. I prefer to ask here as non of the local shops have experience with these internally geared hubs (one store said they could read up on them and work that way ).
If someone knows a place online to buy these things cheap or anything else I may need to fix/maintain things please post! I am on a tight budget.
