Cartridge hub bolts

Post  Tom on 2007-01-20, 13:59

Anyone know how tight the bolts on my rear cartridge hub need to be? I know with cone / balls you have to adjust carefully, is it the same for cartridge bearing? Or do you just 'nip' 'em up?

I ask, because mine keep coming loose without me noticing. Can't be good for the bearings if I ride it like that. Can I safely swing on the bolts like a monkey so they won't come undone? (probably not)

Thanks,
Tom

Top, it doesn't matter like it does with cones. I hae cartridge bearings in my Crossmax, and I tichten them uo tight, but don't hang off them. If I over tighten them, you can feel that the bearings are restricted.

Have a good ride tomorrow.

Cheers for that Nath. Very Happy

Seem to have got it working at the moment, it's a bit tighter than I would like, but it wobbles otherwise. Anyway, they lasted the ride, can't ask for more! I suspect they're wearing out - the shop implied something BIG was wrong with the hub, when I had the bearings changed recently. Oh well!

*wanders over to ChainReaction to see if they sell red-rims*

Think I'll sell 'em on flea-bay before they die completely. Cool

P.s. - the shirt is great by the way! Smile Cheers Nath.
