Default Re: Toasted a wheel bearing on my Cranbrook.

Well, Nunyadam, if lacing a rim isn't a problem for you, then you're halfway there. You might get a Shimano E-110 hub assembly. I'm no expert, but that model seems to have a good reputation around here. Or you could look at single speed, drum brake hubs. Multi-speeds, too. I'll bet some of the folks here could recommend models that are up to the job.

In fact, I could use such recommendations myself because I'm going to put the stock rim on a better hub.

Just this morning I found that same rear wheel bearing ripped up and spit out once more. So I'm giving up on the stock hub. I placed an order today for a Wheelmaster with E-110 hub and 12 ga spokes.

While riding around on that I'm going to lace up the Huffy rim to a hub that's even better.
