Maintain a front DT240 hub
« on: December 01, 2016, 11:54:31 AM »
Did anyone tried to maintain/change the bearings of their DT Swiss 240 hub ?
I have the front 100x15 like this one: https://www.bike24.com/i/p/1/9/35391_00_d.jpg

I can only unscrew one of the end cap.
And don't see how to disassemble it any further.  :-\

The technical document doesn't help me much: https://www.dtswiss.com/Resources/Support/HUBS/DT-Swiss-Hubs-240s-Technical-Manual
And videos seem to deal only on the rear hubs.

That's odd that you have to unscrew the endcap. I've only used 350's but I thought that all the endcaps were just pushed on. If the endcap is screwed onto the axle, it looks like you still could tap the axle / endcap assembly out with a soft hammer.

Otherwise, I would shoot an email to their tech support. I have always had extremely good responses from their customer service. Last week I emailed them about getting some 350 decals as there aren't any aftermarket ones like there are for the 240's and I didn't want to put 240s stickers on a 350 hub. They sent some right out to me, free of charge!

Either way, good luck with the bearing swap.
