had this wheel for about 8 months now and I've replaced the bearings (3) twice, and just today i took it apart to check everything and i found out the one on the inside had blown...
my question basically is How long has your driver bearings lasted and what do you think i can do to prevent this from happening so often, i don't run my chain tight, i lube Everything and i'm running 25/9 gear ratio.

P.S. the bearing that blew was maybe a month and a half old..


Hub, Poverty cassette hub 48h *old ik lol* basically a ody v3, has the same internals, everything.

That's weird I'm running the Poverty cassette and I've never had this problem, grease the hell out of your bearings?
I've had it for 11 months.

I haven't Greased them myself when i got the bearings new, figured the stock grease inside them would be more then good enough

I always over put grease to be safe.

I blew the same bearing a few weeks ago, it only lasted me 4 months. on mine i had the o ring on the outside of where the driver sits backward. Make sure you have the bearings all the way in the driver, try to get them a little past the lip, and maybe a little grease on the outside ring of the bearing? Driver needle bearings are made so you can run the locknuts pretty decently tight.
