    Saint front hub nightmare!

    This hub has been rolling great for the past few years, but my rear needed a rebuild so I had them take the front apart while they were at it and re-grease it. There are specific tools needed to properly re-install the bearing cups and get all the play out, but the shop that rebuilt it said the play cant be taken out. "Its in the design". Bull ****! I've called several other shops since then and no body caries these shimano specific tools.
    Any body else run into this problem? I almost just want to order the tools myself, or just buy a different hub. But then comes new spokes and a wheel rebuild which I didn't want to have to get into just because of some hub play.

    If you have the M800s they're certainly different to other Shimano hubs that I've seen. If you want to get the tools yourself, try here: http://www.cheapbikeparts360.com/pro...int-hub-tools/

    The shimano tech site has an exploded view of the hub and tools: http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830611824.pdf

    Thanks tim. I was thinking about just doing that. Would save me gas from running around to all these different shops.
