    Does anyone have a clue as to how this hub comes apart?

    Got a pair of these hubs last week. I have a small idea how to dismantle them, but in fact it would be great to read an expert´s opinion...

    Does the Compact differ from other Hugis? I do a good number of the regular ones, and have done it the same way for years. All friction fit. Pop the end caps off, an axle vice REALLY helps here, then pull the freehub straight off the axle. It's quite helpful to have the Hugi tool set, but it's been done without, just be careful, or you'll be cryin'.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    How do you pop the end caps off? It does not look like there is any pry port. Thanks, CT

    The older Hugi's are easy to work on- with the right tools. I bought the tool kit for 99 bucks a couple of years ago, which included the pawl lube, and thicker grease. The spacer on the drive side pulls off easily, and even easier with the axle vise. I replaced the bearings last year, using the tool kit, and my 12 + year old hubs are still working great.

    grabe some vice grips, plier or axle vice or anthing and just pull the end caps off the axle. Now with a brass drift (so you don't mar up the axle) or a large allen wrench or anthing that you can use to tap the axle out from the non drive side towards the cassette body. The axle and the cassette body should come off as one unit. Now just tap the axle back out off of the cassette body. Wala, you are done
