Did that actually happen or you just forget normal maintenance? I have "$20" Shimano hubs is service on my commuter for 10 years and they are perfectly fine. On the other hand my Fulcrum wheels from January this year, with cartridge bearings, are already slightly notchy. Sure I can replace them down the line, but I rather have a wheel that doesn't need the bearings replaced in the first place?
