    Help with Drive ring

    Has anybody removed the drive ring from their rear hub? This is a Spot hub which holds the drive side bearing behind the drive ring for the freewheel. Spot told me they are pressed in, but after a few attempts with a screw drive and hammer as well as a bearing press to push it out I believe it is actually threaded. Any tools, or methods used to remove it would be much appreciated.

    Here's a pic as well.

    Why do you want to remove it?

    And the drive ring needs to be removed to replace it? Bad design.

    Yep, but it looks like it can be backed out and re-used after the bearing is replaced.
    It is a weird design. Spot customer service has not been very helpful.
