Can anyone tell me what it sounds like when your wheel bearings need replaced? I just bought this bike with 22k on it, have not had the front wheel off yet, not really getting any sound but interested if there is a particular one I need to be a listing for, does anyone know when the bearings go out?

Mine has a slight vibration when going around left bends, and I feel a rattling sensation in my footplates and handlebars when I go over rough patches. My bike only has 14k on it, but I'm thinking the wheel seal(s) simply aged past their prime and the bearing is losing grease, because spots on my front axle are also greasy/dirty.

Even though there wasn't anything wrong with my bearings I'm glad I have that seal looked at as when he re adjusted it he put good grease on the bearings after inspecting them. 70 bucks is definitely worth the peace of mind
