ball bearings or a ring bearing

I seek progression, not perfection.

just find out if its a sealed or unsealed hub. i have a semi-sealed back hub. stolen revolver stock wheel.. which is absolute junk. i had the same problem as you. but when i took mine apart i found that about half of the little ball bearings literally fell out of the bearing. so i just broke open a skateboard bearing a took my time placing each ball into the races and popped it all back together.. hasnt given me any trouble since.

what was wrong with your spokes? did they just get loose and u had to re-true the wheel? and tbh im lookin to build a whole new wheelset right now... and im buying the shadow raptor hubs... theyre strong, pretty light, come in great colors, and the rear cassette hub is really loud.. lol some people are into that.. but IMO they look really clean.

Yea man the spokes where really loose i didn't think they could get louder than my cassette tho that's pretty silent and i'm looking to re-do my whole eastern and make it my own it will take awhile so i'm just going to buy part for part and put it on you can see what i'm aiming for ---V at my dream parts! let me know what you think ?
