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.
Hmm....replacing the bearings sounds like an expensive proposition and since my bike is OLD I figure the bearings must be worn.....sigh...any idea how much that will cost?
