    Question about older Red Metal 1 hubs

    Hello people,

    I've got a "delicate" question for someone that has a bit more insight into these wheels. I own a 2008, or 2009 version of RM1, and as they look kinda identical to any newer version, I am interested are they also industrial bearings or "normal" conus ones? I've been thinking it's industrial bearings until previous owner told me he dismantled a hub once to clean or tighten it a bit, and saw bearings, but I guess it is expected even if it has "industrial sealed ball bearings"?

    I'm totally confused on this matter, and I'd like to get straight answer just so I can deal with maintenance properly once I get my answer.

    Thanks in advance!
