I had this 2006 OEM wheel sitting around. So, I took the hub and had it laced to a WTB I23 with DT super comps. Nice, stiff and solid.
Before I had the wheel made, the bearing seemed fine. They spun in the hub with no issues. After a few ride, the bearing seem to be "rough", but the wheel spun ok.
I thought "I guess the bearings were bad sitting around for 4 yrs." So, I got some Enduro bearings from Project321. (Great CS by the way). I go to take the small bearing out...............
What a major pain in the A** trying to get that thing out.
I get the new bearings in. They are seated correctly, yet they still have that "rough" feel as I spin the wheel in my hand.
1) Do those small bearings just suck to get out and in?
2) Did the wheel build cause the hub bearings to act rough?
