Hello,

I have been riding my Mavics for about 5,000 + miles now, and am wondering if it is time to unpack the hubs, and regrease them. If so, How do i do it?

Thanks
zuck

I did not have any problems with front hub. Hoewer, Mavic rear hub should be serviced quite often or You will need to replace freewheel soon. It is quite easy and fast, but You should do it several times every year. This is my experience with Ksyrium SL.

What kind of grease/degreaser do you use when you service your hubs?

You do not need to unpack or repack these hubs. They have sealed bearings. They are in good condition if the hubs spin smoothly with no play.

You do need to overhaul the freehub body quite often, it takes about 5 minutes and you can see how to do it in the video posted above.
