Hmmm, well ignore everything on my last post!

On the opposite side, everything inside had rusted away, looks like the seal was completely gone. Half the bearings had worn to dust. Apparently it's an unusual design with an oversized axle and small bearings. Internet suggests this model is disappointing in terms of reliability.

My local bike shop that fixed the front wheel after a crash didn't sound keen on fitting a replacement XT hub now I recall. I've got Hope Pro 4 in the front wheel.
