I find that surprising. I obviously have ridden in wet conditions - this is England, after all - but not a lot. But a freehub bearing should surely be designed to keep water out for a reasonable period of time, especially given where it is located. More than 4,000 miles, which is what we're talking about here.

Anyway, I will now have a spare freehub, so if the new one shows signs of going the same way I will rebuild the old one with some upgraded bearings. Unlike my last wheels (Vision Team 35) the freehub replacement on the Fulcrums really couldn't be much simpler.
