    ... and if we just ... Used Shimano Alfine 8

    Hey everyone - this is my first time posting. I just bought a used Alfine 8 IGH on eBay and am going to build it into a wheel. Is there anything I should do to the hub before I install it? Any adjustments or lubrication?

    As an aside I am planning on building it into a 36h Alex Adventurer rim. Any reason why I shouldn't? This will be my first mtb (a Surly ogre to be used for year round commuting and grocery getting) so all advice is welcome.

    You could open it up and clean it. You'd get some idea of the condition doing that and it would be better to inspect it early than once you have it built into a wheel.

    Safe riding,
