    WTB hubs and Grease Guard...

    Am I wrong in assuming that all WTB hubs come with grease guard?
    I picked up a set of WTB Speed XC hubs for cheap on ebay, thinking they had GreaseGuard but I can't find the grease port. Looking at some of their other GreaseGuard products I know what the port should look like.

    I guess I'm not totally upset if it does turn out they don't have GreaseGuard 'cause I still got a good deal on them. I guess I'm just more curious at this point.

    i think its this little thing that you can stick a grease *** into to lubricate the internals without taking it apart. Not positive though

    You're correct. You inject new grease and it pushes the old grease out...and Viola! Hubs are serviced.

    Well, it's a good way to get new grease in...as for removing the old grease and gunk I have my doubts.

    It pushes the old grease and gunk out as the new stuff goes in. Automotive and industrial bearings have had grease ports that worked in this fashion for years. Works rather well, plus it has the added benefit of not having to disassemble the front end to lube the headset.

    Nothing really wrong with that. I'd like to give it a try on the commuter bike as that one generally sees more weather and miles than the trailbike and hence needs maintenance more often.
