I was going to take apart my hub because I noticed a grinding type noise and now is squeaks. I think it needs greased cause it hasn't been greased since I got it. I took of one of the cone bolts or whatever tf they're called and the other one won't come off. Any suggestions?

It uses sealed bearings you can't grease them you'll have to replace them. If it's female loosened up one bolt not all the way and tap it inward with rubber malet or put a piece of wood and use a hammer.

You most certainly can grease sealed bearings. Just pop the seals off, clean the dirt and shit out of there, and grease it up. I like taking a flat head screw driver and dipping the tip into some grease then into the bearing cause that makes it easier to get into the small area better. Just put a little grease in there, then pop the seal back on.

A lot of times when sealed bearings go bad though, it is much better to just replace them. But greasing them helps.



Now for the OP.. Which hub is it exactly? Sunday and Odyssey front hubs are not the same so you'll need to be more specific. Also make sure spokes aren't rubbing your hub guard if you have one, and make sure your spokes are tight as well cause loose spokes can make noise
