Default Re: Rear wheel bearings

Well after tearing the wheel apart to inspect the carnage I noticed something in the bearing cone that looks to be a casting flaw.

Hub is a write off though

Odd thing is other then the balls falling out of the cage when I pulled everything apart the bearing wasn't all that bad compared to the 1st failure (I expected more after sounding like a blender full of nuts and bolts for 10 miles) 1st time the bearing failed the cage was all sorts of mangled.
