How do you know when your hubs need to be repacked? Whenever I lean into a turn, it sounds like a soft grinding sound is coming out of my front wheel. Is this a sign that it needs to be overhauled? If it is how much does it generally cost to have done.

Whit he wheels off the bike, spin the axle by hand. If it feels like it grinds then it needs repacking/replacing/adjusting.

If it has lots of play(movement) in it, then it also may need repacking, replacing/adjusting.

You can do it yourself, but if you feel you won't be able to, then take it to your LBS(local bike store..).
