Repair Services

Rear Hub Service: $25-$40

Note this is a for standard hub NOT a Coaster Hub.

Labour for this service is $25-$40 and the service takes about 25mins if all goes smooth and things aren’t too rusty or stuck.  The cost of replacement parts not included in this rate. Bearings are the most common thing that need replacement and cost $3.99 each for retainer style bearings and $1.00 for loose balls.

In this service your back wheel is removed, the cassette or freewheel is taken off and the hub is cleaned and fresh new grease added.

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 in the retainer style bearings are loose or falling out and in extreme cases the cage itself is beginning to decay – in this case you need to replace the bearings.
