Bearing Grease Schedule?
#1
I have question about hub grease/crankset/headset

I live in Las Vegas, and don't ride in rain ever. How often shall someone Re-grease those major points? Once a year? every 6 months? I put about 80-100 miles a week on my bike. A trek FX 7.5

Thank you,
Matt

Hi Matt,

Your hubs should be greased most often, as they are spinning the most. At the rate you ride I'd say to take a look at your hubs every 6 months or so, and your bottom bracket and headset every year.

You can also listen to the bearings to see what shape they're in:
