Technical Tip (19) Greasing single-sided hubs easily

Greasing single sided hubs easily

The grease nipples on these hubs are awkwardly placed just where you can’t easily get a straight push on a grease gun.
Take a length of wood of the right size to fit between the spokes and cut a recess halfway along its length to locate the cap end of the gun. Place the nozzle of the grease gun on the greasing point and slip the wood into place.
By pressing both ends of the wood, greasing is accurately done with no messy loss of grease
