Crewkerz through-axle hub, too tight bearings?

4 posts in this topic

Hi!

I have a Crekwerz Jealousy 20 2017 bike, its 6 months old. My real wheel spins really hard compared to my old Zhi hub+normal frame+hs brake combo. I tought the disc brake pads rubs the disc a bit, but last weekend i had a puncture and checked the axle bearing, and they tight as heck. They are lubricated well of course. I have no problem with the front. What can i do?

 

Thanks, and excuse my poor english :) have a nice day!

Make sure they are square! If they are a bit offset, it can make them tight. Otherwise, try to contact Crewkerz customer service on their Facebook page. Their aftersale service is second to none.

It's likely binding on the spacer tube between the two bearings, take the wheel out and give the axle a light tap on one end, that might be enough to remove the axial preload on the ball races.

Thank you guys, a little hit with a hammer to the inner axle at the side of the cog made a miracle, its like butter now :)
