YES!! they do need at least re-greased once in a while. Grease dries out to a gummy state then
the bearings get ground to dust. Fresh grease will make the bike roll almost by itself!

On a bike used everyday once every two years is good if not ridden in the wet. If wet once a year.
For lesser riding times about once every 3 years is good. (remember that grease drys out)

Get'um re-greased and maybe you'll get lucky and not need new bearings..but I doubt it.
