What you can expect to find on this page
This page goes through the various small repairs that may be necessary during the life of a SPEEDHUB.
The wearable parts are: The sprocket, carrier, chainring, jockey wheels on the chain tensioner, twist shifter rubber grip, shifter cables and the brake disc. How quick the parts wear is down to how the product is used and cared for (pressure, dirt, weather and care).
An oil change must be completed every 5000 km or once per Annum to ensure the 25 ml quantity of oil is retained and is free from dirt/moisture contamination. This process ensures that the SPEEDHUB 500/14 will always contain enough oil for lubrication (regardless of oil lost due to sweat oil) and also ensures that any penetrated moisture is rinsed out.
