    New question here. Goblin 2 - Squeaky front hub?

    I'm loving my new Goblin but there's something that's been annoying and slightly concerning me. I get a slight squeak from the front wheel that coincides with wheel rotation speed. It doesn't squeak when there's no weight on it. The sound is not brake rotor/caliper rub.

    I've tried a drop of oil on the dust seals but it didn't make any difference.

    Any ideas?

    it might be a squeak from the spacers, maybe drop some grease in there.

    Are you certain it isn't rotor rub? Sometimes it sounds "squeaky".

    Jeremy, I'm nearly 100% certain as when I slightly apply the front brake the sound doesn't change at all. It will even squeak during moderate braking.

    Perhaps it's something internal to the bearing and not the end cap. I guess I'll just keep an ear on it and see if it gets worse.
