Grease from new Ultegra Hubs
edited August 2011
I have a new set of handbuilt wheels on Ultegra hubs. I keep finding grease has come from the non cassette side cone part of the hub and would like to know if this is normal or should i go back to the wheel builder?
I could be a bad seal but most likely it's just excess grease that was installed by the builder and IMO this is a good thing. Too much grease will stop oozing out after a ride or two and can just be wiped off. Not enough grease will ruin your wheel. If you're not sure how to inspect the seal just call the builder to be safe.
