Ritchey Pro Girder XC probleem


Recommended Posts

Ek het 'n vraag om hulp. 

WErk toe gery met die fiets so paar dae terug en 'n baie snaakse scary geluid van my agter wiel af hoor kom.  Dit klink of daar iets fout gegaan het met die "freewheel".Dead  Dit klink of iets grind as ek trap.  Ek het nog nie opgelet as ek ophou trap of die geluid aanhou nie. 


Ek sal ook nie happy wees nie, want die wiele is nie eers 6 maande oud nie Confused

Dear Francois


Thank you for your e-mail and support of the Ritchey brand. I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with these wheels.


I believe the freehub bearings are running dry. The best solution to this is to have them serviced or replaced by a Ritchey dealer. Alternatively you can have the freehub body replaced at a nominal price.


Speak to your preferred cycle dealer to assist you with this.


Yours in cycling

Robbie's a cool guy, he always tries to help where he can. I remember the one year at the Argus expo 2 of us were chasing one of the Powerade girls, and she was slippery as hell, Robbie stepped in to help, very good bloke!

I have Ritchey XC wheels, and the free body has been giving me hassles from day one. I now just ignore the sounds it makes, and ride it until it stops working, and then replace it (done this 3 times already).

o boy.  Why didn't I just get the Shimano wheels.  O ja.  The spokes were of the wrong manuf.
