Free wheel hub question
The freewheel hub on my Kona sounds and feels like it has sand in it, although it still works fine.
The bike is only two months old and the wheels are Easton XC.
I have never had trouble with a freehub before, the actual wheel bearing is perfectly smooth.
Should the freewheel mechanism be perfectly smooth as well (apart from the clicking of the mechanism)
How do l dismantle the freewheel hub to investigate?
There seems to be no obvious way to do it.
I looked online but could only find information about what it is, and not how to dismantle one.
Can nobody help me with this?
I don't like giving advise when I haven't put my hands on the parts at some point but it sounds like your anxious to take care of this. There should be a threaded cap in the freehub, hold the axle from rotating with a hex key and unthread the cap. Rotate the freehub in the freewheel direction while pulling on it and it should come out. There is a diagram here: http://www.eastoncycling.com/bike/wp...C_One_R_08.pdf and a picture thread here for an AM Havoc hub but it should be similar Easton AM Havoc Freehub Service Guide
Clean and lubricate the pawls and reassemble and I suspect the feel and sound will improve.
