The hubs generally don't need too much maintence. However it's a good idea to keep them greased. Usually I will pull them out whenever I either submerge the axle or grease the wheelbearings, and service them then

I like to pull my hubs apart once a year and clean them out and repack them with fresh grease. Also, about once a month lock them and drive around town for a day or two. This will ensure all the bearings are still good and sling some gear oil so nothing rusts.

I clean and grease the hubs when I do brake or wheel bearing maintenance.

You need to spend some more quality time with the other shift lever ;D
