    Prophet - Fire 6-B hub service

    I'm just going to replace mine. I hear most people have a lot of trouble with the Fire hubs, there just not great quality.

    Cheap bearings and bearing seating

    I noticed play in mine also and discovered bearing seating was notched from bearing impact. Just poor maintenance and rocky riding on my part, so I'm getting new rear tire setup altogether(I still have stock setup). Just inspect bearings, washers, & nuts after degreasing them(I use a dry plastic bottle) and repack bearings with bike grease.
