Can I re-pack wheel hub bearings with standard teflon grease, or does something special need to be bought?

    I use the waterproof pink stuff - think we're talking about the same thing!

    I wouldn't get hung-up about using 'special' bicycle grease. I've repacked bearings with Castrol LM grease before and it's been absolutely fine - happily last a few thousand all-weather commuting miles on cheap hubs.
