Bike service day today. Decided to be good and strip my hubs. They're only 6 months old so figured a bit of preventative maintenance would be a good thing, even as they've not had a huge amount of use, maybe 6 hours a week at most.
Front was Ok, grease looked a little emulsified, but surfaces good. The rear was a different tale. Full of crap.
Drive side cleaned up Ok. Non drive side bearings, cone and hub bearing surface very dull. There's pitting starting on the surfaces already.
Not impressed at all, especially at xt level.
Moved away from cartridges to give shimano a go, maybe I should have gone for XTR instead.
When did they become so rubbish?
