FreeWheel Wear


Recommended Posts

I took the cassette off to clean only to see that the Freewheel hub has wore groves, which has actually caused the remainder of the cassette to stick, if this initial wear common/normal on an alloy freehub

It is common on aluminium freehubs. Use the chain whip to back off the stuck gears to remove them and file down the sharp protrusions before putting the cassette back on

OK thanks I feel better about it now, I had a metal one previously many more miles and not a scratch.

Will it eventually wear right through?
