Anyone had any problems with this hub? Had my Remedy 8 2021 4 months and the bearings have gone in the hub. Slight play in the wheel and brown grease leaking onto brake rotor. Local Trek dealer have agreed to fix it “out of good faith” but made it pretty clear they think it’s somehow my fault.

Didn't have any issues with mine in 3 years on my 18 Remedy, or the few months I've had my 21 Slash. Was it perhaps faulty from new?

Maybe but I guess I’ll never find out. Picked it up from the shop now so hopefully it’ll be ok from now on. One thing the mechanic did say was he’d put better quality grease on it this time so not sure if that’s an admission of poor quality grease first time round. Good service from Trek though, problem reported and fixed inside 24 hours.
