After yesterday's 200k I was doing some work on the bike because my rear wheel felt a little wobbly. I figure, OK, go in there and tighten up the cone and be done. Well, I tighten it down and it got "crunchy" feeling... which is just as bad as loose. I pulled the drive side apart, and it's fine. The NDS, however, has a nice, big, ugly pitted gouge out of it for about 1/3 of the race.
Hopefully I can get just that cone and some new balls for it. I really don't want to rebuild the wheel with a new hub. I'd rather just rebuild the NDS bearing assembly.
