I purchased a Scott Sub 10 last year and use it almost every day for commuting doing around 12 miles a day.
I'd say I've done around 2000 miles since purchasing it last Summer.
I am going to take it in to get serviced soon as I feel the wheels need to be straightened and other things aught to get looked at.... as sometimes the gear (Shimano Alfine, 8 spd IGH) slips when I put it into 8th gear.
I was surprised the bike didn't come with much in the way of instructions about servicing the hub since it came with guides for most of the other components.
I went to one bike shop and they quoted £140 for the hub to get serviced, which seemed a bit excessive until I went and looked at how much the official Shimano servicing kit costs alone.
I want to service this myself as I think it'll be a good lesson to learn.
So my questions are:
- Does anyone have any experience of advice for doing this?
- What tools will I require?
- What lubrication is recommended?
- Are there any guides?
