My freewheel is in need of service. I am not sure whether just a cleanup / grease cycle will be sufficient or whether it will need to be replaced, but right now I am trying to figure how to take it apart...
It's a 2001 vintage Cannondale expert hub.
My Cannondale LBS service manager said that I could just knock the free wheel off by taping the axle from the non-drive side. I tried gently taping and the drive side bearing came out. The axle is still captive.
I am rather concerned about starting to whack pretty hard on the aluminum axle to try to push out the freewheel assembly. When I look at it (see pictures), it looks like there are two indentations inside the freewheel which might be used to "unscrew" the freewheel with a special tool.
Wisdom of the MTBR Cannondale specialists is welcome.
