Maintenance

 Profile Hubs do require maintenance to maintain peak performance. Profile hubs are designed to allow for easy maintenance, removal of the driver, axle and bearings. As a general guideline, the hub should be checked every 3-6 months and serviced by an authorized dealer once a year or as needed depending on your riding style. Here are a few tips if you encounter a problem with your hubs.

     1. After riding your new rear hub/wheel for the first time, remove it from the bike and inspect the driver springs and the pawls along with internal drive ring. wipe clean with a lint free cloth   (Do not use any type of grease, i.e.. White lithium or wheel bearing grease on the driver or drive ring). If the driver pawls need lubrication, we recommend one drop of a light weight free hub oil per pawl pivot point. 

    *Note: If you are riding everyday, then you may want to inspect the internal drive more often.

  1. Over tightening or exceeding the recommended torque spec of your hub bolts will crush the hub cones causing the hub to come loose. Check and make sure that your hub body cones have not been crushed. Remove the cones and inspect the inside race at the bottom of the cone. We recommend that the cones be replaced if there are any signs of damage. (**Note: We recommend your hub bolts do not exceed a maximum of 45ft-lbs.torque).

    3. Wheels built at high tension will cause hubs to become loose (wobble from side to side.). Check and make sure that the spoke tension is right. If your wheel has side movement, check to see if your bearings are easy to push out of the hub body or that the cones have not been crushed.

    4. Planning for a new set of hubs/wheels?  Make sure you look into all the variables that may cause damage to your new hubs. Choose the right hoops/spokes and have a professional build your wheels. In some cases the hoop/rim spoke hole positions, lacing style, and tension can cause damage to the hub.
