Mavic freehub spacer/washer


Johan Bornman

Recommended Posts

A Mavic freehub body spacer (between bearing and freehub body) went AWOL and I need to replace it. However, it costs R125 for a new one. I refuse.

 

Can anyone do me a favour and measure one for me please? I'll then get or make an equivalent.  I know it's a schlepp since you'll have to take off your freewheel (dont drop the washer).

Johan, i received those Mavic freehub bushings this weekend. I can bring the wheel to you and then can have a look at whatever you need.

I still have one that was replaced some time back. Worn but should be complete. Call me if you are not coming right.

Thanks that's kind of you, it'll be useful to have a look at those bushings as well. I'll contact you and Dritbreath offline.

Hi Johan.

 

The price you were quoted from the local mavic guys is for a pack of 10 spacers. They aren't R120 each. I believe you can order 1 if needed.

Thanks, this makes sense.
Anyone want to buy 9 spacers?

From what I witnessed yesterday, the cost should not be R120 for 10. Not even for a 100. Maybe for a 1000. Thanks again for your help Johan.

Now I'm intrigued. What do these things look like?

Don't hold your breath Edman...it's a simple washer. 8mm ID, 1mm thick.

 

Here it is....

And the R125 doesn't include the pen.

That's an expensive washer!

 

I think I've got one of those.  I got a Mavic freehub along with a cassette I bought. There's a washer that's stuck to the inside of the bearing with grease. Give a shout if you want it (although I presume you can get by with a normal washer).

Thanks Edman, got sorted for R1-00

 

Ghostface, we noted the fact that the pack contains 10. Thanks for the info, but there is no fun without some melodrama. After all, the invoice did say "spacer" - singular and I rejected it based on that.

 

Still a far cry from R1-00.
