> Okay so my bike is all up & running again after 2 months of dicking around, but I have a problem: my bearings are going out & instead of repacking them I figure I SHOULD replace them-- the rear wheel has 7K miles on it & the front has 3K but apparently it was an abusive 3K miles as it's worse than the rear.
