Ok so i have a pair of laser disk specials that came on my reign when i bought it 3 or so months ago. While riding yesterday my bike was creekin up a storm under a load so i finished my ride like any die hard and started to tinker a bit when i got home and found that the bearings in the hub of the rear wheel are toast. So i guess my main question is how to i get them out? I have removed the cassestte but cant seem to get the axel portion off except one side.

Sorry for such a late response but work calls. There is nothing on the hubs at all. Must be a no name.

ya got pics then?

no-name suggests a "cup & cone" design ( not bad tho - I have it on my shimanos)
with that, you need a cone wrench (varying sizes - they're cheap tho!) to work on them properly.
you'll also need a lock-ring tool (if this is the case) to pull the ring off to access the cup/cone/bearings on the drive side

POST a PIC! :)

Ok again sorry for the late post. My job keeps me away form my bike which sucks but what do ya do. Anyways heres the picture you were looking for BUT i have good news. It turned out to be a really creaky BB. But i still think my bearings are bad. Bike doesnt creak but the axel still feels crunchy when you turn it by had. The hub has to be a no name or it is a WTB hub.
