Fresh Bearings for the CODA Lefty Hub

The CODA Lefty hub felt rough so I had decided to replace them with a fresh set of Seiko 6805 and 6902-2RS Japanese sealed bearing replacement. The job was a 45 min affair with basic to moderate difficulty. I had performed the task with a set of screwdrivers, a set of Torx wrench, a piece of thick foam to lay down the wheel and a rubber mallet. Initially I had removed the existing bearing by knocking them out from the inner side towards the outer direction. Cleaned the crevice where the bearing is seated and applied some lithium grease into the surface. Installation of the bearing at the disc side was a 2 minute job but the bearing at the far side required more time and effort as it is recessed.
