What kind of grease for hubs?
What kind of grease is good for hubs? I got some auto grease. Is that good?

I use lithium grease for hubs.

Any general purpose auto/bike grease is fine for hubs. If you use a heavy/thick grease like marine grease, don't put a ton into the drive side bearings (if you have a Shimano freehub) since the grease can work up into the freewheel mechanism and cause it to hang.
