Bikes: 2008 Novara Randonee - love it. Would have more bikes if I had time to ride them all. Previous bikes: 1968 Motobecane Mirage, 1972 Moto Grand Jubilee (my fav), Jackson Rake 16, 1983 C'dale ST500.
The problem has to of course be with the hub, either locknuts not tightened or damage to cups/cones. As you've overhauled the hub it can't be my first guess - a broken able. You need to make sure the locknuts are properly tightened against the cones, and if so take the hub apart again and inspect the surfaces. Also, do not rise the balls.
There's no such thing as a routine repair.
Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.
If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.
Please take the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
