I have a set of these with the 77/177 hubs, great set of wheels... however the bearings in the freehub need replaced again! I replaced them in May, now I have done probably a few thousand miles on them. My mechanic tell me there is no seal on them so the water and grit can get in very easy. Is this normal for a set of these wheels, the summer weather was pretty good so not much water or grit could have penetrated them. Any advise or other peoples' experiences would be greatly appreciated!!

  • Let's say they are not the kind of wheels that should see water and grit...

    That said, a less than optimal installation reduces bearing life far more than water and grit. Replacing freehub bearing is never an easy operation
