    ENO hub service tips

    Complete amateur here, so bear with the pain.

    I picked up a pair of used White Industries ENO front and rear non-eccentric disc hubs for a nice price, but they're both pretty gummed up and don't spin easily, which I assume means the bearings need replacement.

    WI has a simple guide for servicing them, but I'd like to clarify:

    1. Are all bearings created equal? Ebay offers a range of stainless and ceramic bearings, but should I get name brand to be sure?

    1. What other maintenance should be done on a hub while it's dissasembled? Put some lubricant in?

    Any ideas?

    Get enduro abec 5 bearings. Cheap, especially when you're only getting four, snap ring seal for easy bearing maintenance if you so choose. I replaced the bearings in my 9 year old eno recently and it's super easy. Use old bearings to punch new ones in.

    Not all bearings are created equal, not even close. WI uses pretty good bearings from the factory, so an OE replacement wouldn't be bad. Enduro would also be a good choice. I'd be very leary of buying some random part from fleabay though.

    ENO hub service tips

    Thanks thanks.

    I'll look up some decent name brand bearings, then.

    Anything else I should clean or polish or oil while I have them open?

    There is nothing else. Shell, axle, bearings, end caps. Grease the bearing seats with lots of grease, the excess will slide up to form an extra shield for the bearings.
