    squeaking lefty?

    Hey there,

    So I bought a new Scalpel 29er 3 a few weeks ago, I absolutely love the bike, such a fast bike.

    The only thing that is a bit annoying is that every ride I go out on, after about a mile or two i develop a squeak in the front hub. it's not break related, it almost sounds like rubber squeaking against something.

    Any thoughts? I don't want to be that guy that is always running to the shop to fix ghost issues.

    Thanks,

    John

    This issue has been mentioned on this forum numerous time....the search function is your best friend....
    Remove axle cap, take out O-ring from axle bolt, replace axle cap, done.
    Be aware of the cap being reverse threaded.
    If you don't want to remove the O-ring a few drops of oil inside that gap between axle bolt and cap will help.

    Always make sure youre spelling the words correctly. If you dont, your search wont yield proper results.

    Some great info in those threads.
    These are 6-3 year old threads. I guess you'll never see them if you don't do a search.

    I love the irony of your Sig: "Common sense isn't always that common!"LOL
