Default Re: Micargi Vs. Huffy

invariably, these were not supposed to be subjected to the wear and tear of mechanical automation. First thing I do on my builds since the last hub blow out is give the inside of the hub a couple wraps with the aluminum duct tape to stop the spokes from poking through the tires, then I dismantle the hub and pack the bearings with grease that can stand the heat of the high RPMs, as after 15 minutes on the 66cc motor the rear hub always seemed to have a meltdown of the grease followed by a spewing of the grease. Not a good time. Also switching out my tubes with the slime tubes to take care of the punctures.
