He recently told me about this bike, and said the front wheel didn't seem to have much glide, and when spun, it slowed down and stopped rather quickly.
He decided to open up the hub and give the bearings some grease.
Upon doing so, he said bearings just came rolling out.
I immediately thought he must have over tightened it, and fried them.
But he said inside the hub, there were no cups or races, just a handful of loose bearings inside.
He's afraid to ride it now.
Makes me wonder, is this some new fangled way to do bearings?
Just throw a bunch inside a hub, close it up and call it good?
Or did the old man screw up his bike?
Same thing happened with a bike I bought from Costco, I took it back.
