My front hub seems a little bit noisy although it spins freely. Any tips on rebuilding them? What kind of grease etc. Thanks, G

These use the standard Shimano cup and cone setup on solid steel axles. If you are new to it go to the Shimano Europe website and download the PDF file with the exploded view, it will help you put it all back together should you totally disasemble for cleaning purposes. They are pretty simple actually although the cone ajustment may take several trys to get it right.

As for grease I'm a big fan of Mobile-1 synthetic grease sold in an auto parts store. It's only $3.99 for a 16oz tube and it's highly water resistant.

I just ordered a set of these wheels, how do you like them?
