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.
