My Gipiemme front hub has started leaking a good amount of oil after only about 200 miles of use. This seems strange to me but my wife has the exact same hub and it is doing the exact same thing. I am new to road biking but have been MTBing for years and have never had this problem with any mountain hubs I have used. My question is is this normal for a new hub as it wears in or am I having a problem. Also are Gipiemme hubs any good? Thanks in advance.

The hub was probably "overpacked" with grease.......No big deal.
"GPM" components used to be "Campy clones" with fair quality. They probably have gotten better over the last 10-15 years.
