    rubber boots on hubs??

    I have some wheel on an older canondale r400 caad3 and it has those rubber boots on the hubs. How do i get around those to do maintence like repacking the bearings? I dont want to pull them off because it would appear they are sealed or pressed into a lip on the hub and im afriad if i pull that lip out of hte hub it wont be able to get it to seat back in there properly.

    Is there a trick here? Whats the deal ont these rubber boots? I have another wheelset from a late 90s fuji. Same deal although the previous owner appears to have tried to pull the boot away and ti tore around the lip area. I have not had these apart either because im not sure how to tackle it.

    No clue as to the parts pick that is on your bike's build list.
    Bike companies are a brand name on a frame,
    they buy everything else from other component manufacturing companies

    seems no issue taking them off current Shimano boots, on some budget hubs.

    Suggest you offer a picture , perhaps? make it a series of close ups.
