- WTD: Hope XC hub bearings and tools
If you have a socket set then you don’t need the tools – just use an appropriate size socket as a drift.
Lots of ebay sellers doing bearing kits for the XC hubs nice and cheap.
Just remember there’s a circlip in the rear which you need to remove before drifting out the bearing (for this you will need circlip pliers) – otherwise you’ll be hitting the bearing for a very long time and not much will happen 🙂Posted 5 years agogusamcMember
Hi poongoe – yes, as I understand it 6
2 for front, 2 for back and 2 for freehub, *sorry but can I check are they stainless/high quality sealed ones – the original appears to have lasted about 8 years
presumably to drift out I need a socket (or bits of wodd etc) that ‘fits’ the hub metal to let the bearing come out as the help indicates NOT to use wheel/spokes.
The 1st front get pushed out by hitting axle.
