    Default Rant - x1 out of x2 new hubs noisy

    Annoyed. One of the brand new Optima branded rear hubs I've got from the UK is noisy as. The other is fine, no problem.

    Wonder if I just drive on it and will 'run in'....

    Now to deal with the warranty - how do you do that with a hub which has to be wrecked to be removed using a puller?!

    Agh.

    Crisis over. Had just (tightly) nipped up the hub nuts and spun which generated the noise.

    Went back and torqued up with impact driver, noise gone.

    Never played with interference fit bearing hubs before - obviously they have tight tolerance and really squish together when torqued correctly.

    Can sleep well tonight now!
