Would regreasing the bearings be part of replacing a spoke on the drive side of a wheel for a mountain bike? I watched the video on bearings, and it looked like they might have needed to take out the bearings when they changed spokes - I had a spoke replaced last month and didn't get to watch when they did the work. The wheels about 3 years old, and now I'm wondering if I need to do this or if they would have done it when the spoke was replaced. Also, would automotive wheel bearing grease work for bicycle? It seems like the automotive grease would be made to higher standards than a bicycle would require.
