Labour for this service is $30-$40 and the service takes anywhere from 45mins to over an hour depending on how long it has been since your last hub clean-up. The cost of replacement parts not included in this rate. Bearings are the most common thing that need replacement and cost $4.99 each (the coaster has 3 cage bearings). In this service your entire coaster brake hub is taken apart into all of it’s little pieces. They are cleaned and degreased and assessed for wear and tear. Bearings are replaced as needed and new fresh grease is put in.
Common Question: Can we do the service without replacing bearings?
Answer: Yes and No. Your old bearings can be cleaned and reused, though we don’t recommend this unless they are still in good condition. In most cases we find that the balls are loose or falling out of the cage bearings and in extreme cases the cage itself is beginning to decay – in this case you need to replace the bearings.
