    Spot Hub Question

    Is a 4 year old rear spot hub worth rebuilding? It's been badly abused and ridden till it is nearly frozen and then ridden some more. It's now making really bad sounds, like bearings being smashed against cones in broken glass.

    Treatable or Terminal?

    Spot Hub

    I have spot hubs and just recently had the rear one apart. Is a pretty simple piece of equipment. I would just get 2 new bearings from Spot. They sent me a new axle in about 3 days. Just make sure you press the bearings in carefully when you get them.

    If the hub shell is in ok shape, then it is very simple to replace the bearings, axle, and cones.
    Costs like $25 to do two rear hubs, so about $13 in parts and that hub will be good as new.
