This type hub can easily disassembled lubrication, but must be correctly; incorrect can lead premature wear failure. In “cartridge bearing” the bearings contained in cartridge that shaped like hollow cylinder the inner rotates with to the surface by use of bearings. The tolerances, as as seal can be superior to ball bearings. cartridge is into the shell and axle rests the inner of the The cartridge itself is not serviceable adjustable; instead entire cartridge is replaced case of or failure.
