Cold Weather Hub Info from SRAM
- I just received the following cold weather maintenance info in an
email from SRAM technical support. To me it indicates that SRAM
hubs can be oil lubricated if desired.
Yes, in below freezing temperature the internal lubricants can begin
to slow. You can open your hub, pull the planetary gear carrier out
and dip it into a low temperature motor oil. This will help the
small parts and planetary gears move and function more smoothly.
Dismantling instructions can be found here starting on page 60:
2009- gear hub systems.
