Last night I took apart/repacked my front hub, first time after a few years of riding. It all went smoothly, a little too smoothly maybe. My book (Zinn art of mtn bike maint) made it sound like the final adjustment would be a tedious process. I put everything back together again, and it sounded, well, like it sounded before. I tweaked it a couple times, no change that I could notice. Put it back on my bike each time, the wheel spun fine. Rode it to work this morning, no problems. The only difference I could notice is that the front brakes squeal like never before.
So the question: how do you tell when the final adjustment is right? The book really wasn't clear, except when it sounds/spins right.
Thanks a bunch
