I have had the wheel for 2 years. It was fine until last weekend, when it was very hard to pedal. I had been riding in the hills (5,000 foot climb in 17 miles). During descents, my rims got so hot that I couldn't touch them. A shop took it apart and said that there are no marks on the bearing race. They said that the dust shield must have been compressed against the bearings, so they replaced the bearings and regreased. Has anyone else ever had a problem like this? What could have caused it?
Doesn't sound logical to me.nee Spoke Wrench

Did your hub get hot or was it your rim that got hot?
