Not exactly a retro issue but my new (15months old) Dura Ace 10 spd rear hub is very scratchy.
I know that one of the bearing races in the hub is badly pitted. Is there any mileage in filling the pits with 'supersteel glue' then sanding with fine wet and dry? (Or can you suggest any omore appropriate fillers?)
Or is it, as I fear time to buy a new hub?
Cheers in advance, Radar
Sheesh. That is real bad luck. I've got a pair of 8 year old 9spd Ultegra hubs which have been on several bikes, ridden through a few winters, crashed and generally abused and they still run well.
I realise that doesn't help but I'd suggest sanding the race smooth with some wet and dry. Take it you've done big mileage on them ?
