Bearing Wear

[QUOTE=jaco_flans;1702245]Well, a regular hub only need bearings repacked/replaced every few years. A Schlumpf hub has a total of 9 bearings inside. Mine had bearings replaced twice in 4 years of riding. The disk brakes make the bearings wear quicker as well (even on the new generation).

interesting comment, and that is why I put the disc on the hub of my schlumf so the brake torque does not transmit through the gears.

see my adapter on page 101 of this post.

new style Schlumpf hub

Hello again, while rooting around in the garage I found this disc adapter for a 48 spoke rim, 36 hole schlumpf hub. It could probably be re-drilled for a different rim spoke pattern. That means fare game to anyone with abilities like Jaco-Flans or Saskatchewanian because this had to be remade due to mistakes. Oh the disc measures 8" across, and it was made for the new generation hubs.
