I've put one of these on the bike im building at the mo but i admit to knowing nothing about it other than i was a good price and the right colour.

Theres a bearing valve centre of the middle of the hub. Grease point ?.
If anyone has any knowledge of what you squeeze in there that would be appreciated too.

Im trying to find its front too, in the same colour, which is a light gold.

Cannot find any info on that site though but most of the pics relating to them are linked back here.

If it has the funny looking freehub, then that'll be like my SAM hubs, it an oil port and only oil.
It moves through and into he freehub as it runs on the oil.

Aye, it's all I could find as well. Certainly Goldtech despite being Welsh theres not a lot of info about them beyond some company history stuff.

Im flogging it anyway to pay for some gold hopes i got, which finished off the hope gold stuff nicely 8) But I wanted at least to attempt to service it or if the bearings are ti nitride maybe its just adding some oil . Not that theres anything amiss with it. I just like to make sure things are working as they should and can continue working as they should
