    Yes. I will surely take the words of "Tha Dawg Catcher" to heart, you've truly cut to the quick of me.

    I'm going to go successfully have sex with an attractive woman now.

    you hold tightly to those edgy acronyms of yours. They're quite gripping.

    Sounds like time for some of this ......

    In all seriousness though. I've got the wheel listed here for 300 dollars. all parts included. I need to find out if it's okay to post a paid spam in here, because thus far all I've gotten is scammer emails.

    I really don't want to ebay this thing. They gouge sellers fiercely.

    For her sake, I hope you're better at that than you are at working on bikes, otherwise she's in for a big disappointment

    I'm so good at working on bikes I'm a part of an organization that asked me to train others to fix bikes. So that insult doesn't really bother me.

    Heck, I can fix a modern car, nothing about a bike is challenging. After working on a few manual transmissions, this hub is not at all scary.

    It's called a "ribbing" or a "joke".

    Didn't expect this kind of garbage in this sleepy little subforum, enjoy the negative rep, Tha Dawg Catcher.

    yeah. It wasn't the best approach.

    I really wanted to sell this wheel system and get some 105 instead. but my add here is nearly out. and I've had zero luck on ebay and craigslist.

    Seems like I'm going to have to suck it up and service it myself. I find it alarming that I seem to be the only mechanic in town (Or the whole county) not terrified of servicing these things.

    I will try to not get ATF on the kitchen counter.

    I am interested to know why people are afraid to separate the internals. my research shows that they're "timed" with blue dots on the planetaries?

    If you're "so good" (your words) that you train others then -
    a) Why don't you train them to service Alfine hubs at the same time as doing your own?
    b) Do it where you do your training then you won't have to risk spilling ATF in the kitchen (it easily wipes up, BTW)

    Simples.....

    I train others because I am staff at a bike Co-Op. a position I was asked to take after volunteering there for about 4 days. I'm considering doing the wheel work at said Co-Op. but things tend to walk away if you blink too long (Bye-bye, XT derailleur.) Also, while I technically have access to our shop whenever I want. it's a long commute and the community center we are inside keeps random hours. So it's a bit of a gamble. I may still try to do the work there. if I do I'd like to do it in a position where we can all learn about these hubs.

    I already gave two LBSes detailed instructions on this VERY easy process. I allowed them to ask questions then let them know I would hold no ill will against them if they didn't feel comfortable with the work.

    both shops said they were comfortable with the work. both shops just took the wheel and more or less stared at it.

    Just pour a capful of ATF in the left, non-drive side, that's the same as a dip when it's a new hub. No fuss, no muss, happy SO.

    Finally got down to the Co-Op (I moved a little bit ago, the Co-Op in this state is a bit of a drive away now) and did a full dip. no dissasembly of the guts. but a good, by the books cleaning and dipping. the hub was barely greased at all. I didn't over grease it. but I made sure the races and bearings had solid coverage.

    checked my bearings and races and everything looked great. no shavings or pieces anywhere.

    Quicker, quieter shifts. substantially less drag. It's really shaping up! I think I might like the gearing a bit more if I swap my 16t for an 18t.

    Everyone at the new Co-Op was like "WOAH, look at that!"

    Which to be fair is like, 60% of why I bought the thing.

    I'm also told that they wear in to be even smoother. this thing has barely 300 miles on it. I'm excited to see where it's at in another 700.
