    Shimano 8-speed Alfine servicing needed in San Jose area

    I also cross-posted this in the IGH Hubs forums as well.

    I need to find a shop who can do the teardown/soak/re-lube of a Shimano Alfine 8-Speed internally-geared hub. The shops I’ve asked so far get scared at the idea, and then are leery of my recommendation of using Mobil-1 ATF instead of Shimano’s special 200/liter formula apparently made from ground up endangered species. Anyone know of a shop that CAN ACTUALLY do this? I’ve got around 2,900 miles on this thing and when coasting, I can hear the pawls/ratcheting stuff make lubethirsty noises. Thanks!
