    Guardian Rear Frewheel Hub..

    First, I love this Bike.


    Second, however, I'd like to know if anyone has had issues with the rear freewheel hub- Mine started grinding pretty bad after about 2 months. As it turns out, I brought it to the LBS and found out that the grease pack in the hub was "lazily" done (as the LBS tech put it) where the grease was kind of "smeared" on the outside of the bearings. Cheap fix for me, after the bearings were repacked- good as new. But, anyone else out there that has some grinding from the rear, may want to check that out. Could have been a production anomaly, I suppose.

    Overall, the bike is a 10/10 though!

    Did yours start to creak at all before the grinding? My rear wheel seems to emitting a very loud creaking noise once in awhile and I'm wondering if this is an early sign.

    It could be- worth checking out for sure. As Mitch1171 pointed out, you might want to tighten everything up. Er, What's a Skewer?
