1385Re: Alfine hub breaking-in period?
- Aug 9, 2009Good to know - I have never had an IGH before so this behaviour was new to me. Since I mail-ordered the complete wheel, I wanted to make sure I didn't have a lemon or a "friday hub" before it was too late to send it back.

> There is a break in period but a geared hub will never be as low resistance to wheel spinning as a derailleur rear wheel due to the amount and size of the internal parts and the relatively large diameter wheel bearings compared to those found on a derailleur freehub. The grease may contribute to the effect too.
