Replacing Rear Hub

Hi guys

I have a Felt Curbside which does 350k a month and the rear hub has disintegrated and I need to replace it.

When picking a new rear hub do I need to look out for something in particular, or does all hubs of the correct size work (28H)?

Also how difficult is it to swap over the gear?


Cheers. B

    Once of the caps on the rear hub has been damaged and come off and the ball bearings have come out.

    new cones and balls, easier and cheaper than a unbuild and rebuild.

    talk to your LBS.
