Hey guys,
my front hub is having some problems sad It doesn't spin smoothly and stops immediatly like 3 seconds after I make it spin with my hand. When I took it off the fork I noticed that it makes some little sketchy noice when spinning..
It's a new default sealed hub that came with a complete bike..

Thank you guys!

That's why you should never buy a complete bike ...

shagged or collapsed bearing(s) probably is most likely culprit

bearings you can probably have them replaced for like 30 bucks at lbs if they got em

Does it spin freely when it's not in the forks? If it has a threaded cone, try loosening it off a touch. If it has a bush instead, one of them may be touching the bearing too much. Profile make really thin spacers that can cure that

Shit I've been riding 20 plus years and I'm on a complete now and it came with Cinema VX2 wheels. Your statement is not true

I agree.

Take the wheel off the bike and inspect your hub. I mean pull it apart and rebuild it. Don't forget grease. If you notice the bearing seal is pressed in or they feel kinda gritty when you spin them, head to a machine shop. They will probably have the bearings that fit perfectly and cost about $10.00.

You can always carefully pull the cover of the bearings off. Then clean them out and regrease them. I highly recommend marine grease, blue or green. It is super smooth and lasts longer than everything else I have used in 30+ years riding
