    Are these hubs serviceable?

    The hubs in question are from my boardman team mtb (2011). They don't feel rough when spinning the wheel in my hand, but as I'm not sure if they have ever been serviced (purchased the bike second hand), I thought I'd strip them down even just to give the hub a clean and re-grease. I can get one...

    Can anyone identify these hubs?

    I've been given a pair of hubs which I'm trying to identify. I think the rear is an 8 speed cassette hub. 24 spokes. The front is 20 spokes. There are no marks apart from the three lines shown, and some small stamping which may be the letter I and A. Does anyone know what these are?

    Oiling a Sturmey Archer hub

    I oiled my long neglected Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub because the bike was jumping out of gear and wouldn't stay in first gear at all. I read online that I shouldn't use WD-40 and that 3-in-1 oil was also not recommended, even though many people use it, but rather thin engine oil was best. So I...

    How do I re-build / service hubs, what do I need?

    Howdo, I've got some 27 inch wheels which need a spoke replacing, they also could do with some TLC, I don't think they are sealed hubs, they don't look it. What do I need to service the hubs in terms of parts and working out the sizings if parts need replacing? The bike is a Raleigh...

    Hub bearings...

    Yesterday on a ride where my bike got caught in the rain and where I ended up doing a spot of inadvertent CX, my rear hub started making an alarming noise like a bag of spanners, first when freewheeling and later all the time. I know the hub races and bearings will need inspection and at a bare...
