Boardman Front Hub Service

Hi

I started biking again after about 40 years ... a couple of months ago, bought a 2014/15 Boardman TXC 650b on eBay. I cleaned, replaced ball bearings in the rear hub, which now seems to be running ok. I understand the hubs are not so great Formulas, on Mavic rims.

The front hub seems to be ok, no play and free running but I thought I would clean and grease it or it might be a sealed bearing, but I don’t know how to get into it to see/ check There isn’t a cone spanner flat on it on either side, just circular black caps. I tried gently prising a black cap off, without success albeit I didn’t use high force, but not sure of the best way. Would anyone know, and if there’s a tool that’s best to get it off? I would like to get it off, if for nothing more than to know how to do it.

Thanks for any advise.

Al
