Cresta GT: Front Wheel
With the Front rim clean you can actually read the label. My first set of anodized rims.
I have also not worked on sealed hubs before either. More on that later.
A good amount of grease in the hub but old and in need of changing.
Clean and ready of new grease and bearings.
And clean hub parts after a long sonic bath.
So what I discovered is that all Sealed bearing means is the metal cover has a rubber piece in it. Other than that its basically the same as any other vintage hub I have worked on. I think for modern sealed bearings they mean the bearing are in a sealed container ...
like this one.
And some new rubber to finish things off, really looking to riding these Sand Canyons. With the upcoming three day weekend I hope to make a push to get it all finished and to that end I have already started on the rear wheel because it was the dirtiest part of the bike.
Ride. Smile. Repeat.
