Help with HED 3 wheels- buttery feeling or not?(4 posts)

Help with HED 3 wheels- buttery feeling or not?mazobob
Aug 23, 2003 2:48 PM
I have a set of HED3 and am contemplating the bearings. the fronts are sealed and the rear has one sealed on left side and 1/4 ballbearings on the right side. It seems like my old Rolf Vector Pros turn easier... more of a buttery feel. What experience do you have with the HED 3 and how smooth do they turn? I have about 1000 miles on mine. All comments and advise are appreciated!

They are Ultegra hubs and bearings FWIW.
