Seems like a bunch of us on the forums are getting us some new wheels now that the spring is here, so maybe a good time to ask this question. What i wonder is this: I've read in a few threads in the past that it's a good idea to open up new hubs, clean the bearings and then regrease them with high(er) quality grease. Is this something that only really anal people do, or is it truly a good idea?
I've actually never fiddled with the inner workings of my hubs, so the idea both excites and scares me a bit b/c i don't want to mess anything up, but it's about time I step it up a notch and learn how to service my own hubs. What do you guys think about the grease thing?
(the hubs in question for myself here are some Dura Ace 7600, but i think the question probably applies to any hub straight from the factory.)
