Campag Ultra Torque bearings - greasing
edited December 2009
How often do these bearings need to be re greased?
Campag material suggests after every wet ride, but this cant be right - can it?
The bearings on my centaur chainset are sealed. No need to lube, No harm in taking the chainset out and replacing the bearings if they feel a bit rough though. I dont think they are expensive..
Edit : atually they are around £20 ...

Or take the old bearings to a local bearing shop... You will need a puller to remove the old ones though..
Removing UT bearings requires a special puller and drift to refit - not a DIY job without special tools. In these conditions, suggest your remove the cranks and apply grease to the exterior of the bearing/ bearing cups to protect them from the weather. I wouldn't suggest popping the seals and repacking unless they are already rough.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

100m Yeah right.
I bought my bearing puller from Ebay for about £8 delivered.
They do require a bit of machining to get them to fit, but its quite simple for a competent DIYer.
Total cycling sell one thats already been machined but its nearly £100.
To refit them I've found that a 1 1/8 inch crown race setter does the job.
