Freehub suggestions ...

Postby Critter7r » June 25th, 2020, 11:07 am

I don't need a whole new wheelset, but I do need a new cassette, but the keyways on the freehub are deformed, (MAD POWER YO!!) and the cassette won't come off.

I figure I can remove the freehub and the cassette as one and then replace them. (I haven't done that yet, because I still need to ride!)

How do I know which one to get? It's a Shimano 525SL hub. Do I just get the FH-M525 hub? I don't see any SL525-specific freehubs. And I probably don't know enough technical info to ask the right questions.

I found an FH-525SL freehub and ordered that and a new cassette.

Fingers crossed.

Of course, the Trek website shows that the Bontrager rear rim (which I have) is mated to a Shimano 525SL hub (which I don't have).

My rear hub is a DT Swiss something or other.

I guess I'll just have to take it apart and see what it is.

Trek dealer should be able to identify and order the correct part.

I've had that problem, the HD driver solved that problem.
When was the first bicycle race?
When the second one was built !!!

I'm waiting till I get the freehub to take it apart in the hopes that whatever showed up will work. If not, I'll put it back together and order something else.
