Wheel bearing maintainence

edited October 2010 in Legacy Products
What is the suggested routine for maintainence of wheel bearings. I have chain lube down pretty well. adjust brakes whenever needed. Have replaced frayed brake cable. Not sure about wheel bearing preventive maintainence. Help. Please.

We are about 4000 miles into our trikes. :D 8-)


  • Bearings in the wheels are sealed so they should need no maintenance.
  • Bob is correct.

    They are pretty much maintenance free. Obviously salt water conditions and high mileage might dictate a repacking or replacing, but we've got people with over 20,000 miles on their trike without any issues.

    Bottom line, don't worry about the bearings - go ride :)
