Identifying hubs ?

Hello :D

I have a 2010 GT Avalanche 3.0 in standard trim (its not had any changes or upgrades) and I'm struggling to identify the rear hub so I can order new cones, dust seals and bearings. Is there anywhere I can get this information ? I can't see anything printed/stamped into the hub itself.

Thanks in anticipation

    Bearings will be balls, so that's easy. 99 % chance 3/16th" front and 1/4" rear. 20 front and 18 rear.

    probably some rebadged Chinese hubs, Formula or Quando or similar. Again probably a common size, so locally Cyclo is available from most places cheap.

    Or just clean and lube the cones you have.

  • Thanks, bang on with the 1/4 x 18 balls, but I'd like to replace the cones and dust covers as well. I suppose the simple answer is go see my local bike shop !

    Bet they try and sell you new wheels.

    Most decent LBS will have a second-hand box full of cones, dust caps etc - they should find ones to match
