Congealed grease?

What kind of grease are you using?

A good High Tack grease is best, it will continue to always works itself into the areas it needs to be and dont be sparing with itentire axle as well as bearings should be heavily coated, that way there is always enough grease to keep things coated.

Thats how I do mine and the bearings stay in good shape for a long time when tensioned correctly.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
