|Should I disassemble and lube my NEW Campy hub?||JBF|

|I just got new rear Daytona real cheap and will be building a new wheel with it soon. It came with the bearings adjusted a little tight for my taste, so I readjusted to my liking.
That lead me to my question on this post. Do Campagnolo hubs usually come from the factory with adequate lubrication, or should I do this relatively simple task before I build/ride it?

|I have been into many of the new style Campy hubs and they are lubed just fine, and will stay that way because of a good sealing system. Adjust the hub to be shake free after the wheel is built and the Q/R tight.|

Read about the hubs from a review from campyonly, scary.

|Actually, the only Campy stuff I've had has been used, so I can't speak for factory lubrication. Whenever I've looked at ANY of the bearings on a new bike or new wheel, though--Shimano now, Suntour in the old days--the lube has looked skimpy to me. I've occasionally found missing bearings, too, but only in offbrand stuff.|| |
