Servicing Shimano RS10 wheels

Postby blu3cat » Thu Jul 22, 2010 16:45 pm

I am going to attempt to serive my not too happy sounding front RS10 shortly, and the bit of info I am having trouble fining is what size bearings I should get for the job.

I've had a look at the SHimano Technical document and there's lots on Spokes, but not on the bearings / cups.

Anyone know, please?

I did mine earlier this year. I was almost disappointed that they were still spinning silently with no signs of play, dirt or rust after 18 months / 2 winters. Still took all the bearings out and cleaned / regreased everything though.

Just take care not to mutilate the plastic dust caps when you take them off.

Any shop with a madsion account that is willing to order for you. I have an RS10 rear hub which can donate good cones and a good freehub. Bearings will be not special to the RS10 proabaly 1/4" balls grade 25. You can buy those anywhere. The grade of the balls is important. Grade 10 balls will work also well. Let me know I think I even have some spokes (NDS). DS spokes are a different length, which side do you need. I think I have everything.

I need 2 DS and 1 NDS spokes I think, I've had to make do with straightened standard spokes. Obviously not ideal as it potentially weakens the spokes.

To be honest, I'm looking at building new wheels myself using standard Sora/Tiagra hubs and either Mavic or Stans rims. At least using standard spokes and rims with a more conventional spoke hole count will mean I'll be able to find spares a lot faster.
Or just buy a new set of rs10s and use my existing for spare spokes, they have had a hard life of 35mile commutes in ALL weathers.
