I'm running this hub with a 20mm through-axle.
Kind of expected bulletproof performance, but I'm suddenly on my 3rd set of brand-new bearings in under 6 months. Oddly, brand new bearings seem to go only about 5 rides before a tiny bit play develops. The free play doesn't progress too quickly from there, but it's there.
I've got good fit with the axle end-caps and through axle. The play is definitely coming out of the bearings.
All three times, the play seems to develop on the disc-brake-side bearing first. The fork itself has been replaced, and the second set of bearings went quickly on a brand new fork with a carefully set up brake.
Wondering if I'm just running into a batch of bad bearings, or if anyone else has experienced low bearing life with this model of hub?
Any other experiences?
