My rear hub gets new bearings once a year, spoke nipples every other. It's a Fat Bike for fuck's sake, they live in salt.
i have learned that people like to blow the severity of maintenance out of proportion, or they just dont want to do it at all so anything that shortens that window and requires effort/time/money to keep up with is a problem . . . . .
Please include coupons for discounted hub rebuild due to sand/salt water contamination. Thanks
the salt air isn't going to do shit to the bearings (they are sealed and greased), and unless submerged for an extended period its unlikely a substantial amount of water or sand is getting past the seals. (hell even getting that stuff TO the seals is a challenge)
