Xentis HM 1 servicing

Postby j_imaizumi » Mon Oct 24, 2011 2:47 am

Its been such a long time since I posted anything on this site.. Hope everybody is doing well. My daughter just turned one and is keeping me busy and off the bike...

In the midst of all this craziness, I did have one question. I noticed that my front Xentis HM 1's were spinning poorly so I am intending to take apart the hub for a bit-o-servicing.. Does anybody have the slightest idea on how this can be done?

Long time no "see".

It's normal for the Xentis Mark wheels (those the ones you have?) to have more drag in your hand than other wheels. If it was better before and you want to check them out, I believe they are DT 240s internals.
