So I bought a new wheelset last spring with the intention of upgrading the hubs soon enough, so I opted for the cheapo formula 20mm hub on a mavic 729…worked for a while but now the front hub has an unreal amount of play in it, I looked online but couldnt find any rebuild information, can I replace the bearings in them?? Or am I stuck rebuilding my wheelset?
Kind of a piss off if they are not rebuildable.. both for the money and the waste of it.
if I cant rebuild them - what is the failure mode for this sort of thing, will it all of a sudden lock up and kill me? Or eventually the play becomes so bad that its just embarassing to ride it anymore? Catastrophic failure mode or just performance turning to shit before I get hurt.
