    Forte Xenduro Wheel - need replacement freehub

    busted the freehub on my Xenduro rear wheel and PB says they stopped making this wheel and can't get parts (weren't particularly helpful, i felt). does anyone know what hub is used in that rear and where i can get a replacement freehub? thanks.

    Novatec D882 is the hub model. Sometimes you can find parts and/or hubs on Fleabay.

    This is what I found out.
    bdopcycling.com and go to freehub
    It looks nice red
    Not sure if the website is legit
    My guess is free hub is type B

    it does look like it is the b-type. i guess one could sent it back if it doesn't fit.

    ocguy, did you buy this from Performance? If so, then just return it for refund (or replacement). Performance has a great return policy, which I have used (I returned a back wheel that was the model before the Xenduro).

    If you didn't buy it from them, you might be able to still return, or make a deal on a new one. Depending on the store or who I get on the phone, I get the feeling they do not like their broken components out in the world.

    Yeah, plus the wheel is NLA with Performance, too, so you couldn't get a replacement anyway. I'm 99.99% sure that the hub is a D882B.

    Plus I'm in Canada, so if mine fails I'd rather just buy a new freehub, than ship the wheel cross the border to Performance...

    No, I didn't order any. May be in the future.
    my hub works fine. Its a great wheels. I would buy again if the performance bike stock them.

    Another option is bring your freehub to performance store
    and compare it with forte terramax freehub
    Looking at the pic, it looks like novatec hub as well. I'm not sure what type
    If it matches, may be you can talk them out to swap the hub as warranty
    I doubt that they will do that

    good idea, but i also doubt they will do that. lots of work to swap the whole hub. still waiting to hear back from novatec rep and het my replacement freehub. will try calling...again. if no luck maybe just prder from the site you posted and keep my fingers crossed.

    After still not receiving my freehub or an update from novatec i contacted bdopcycling.com about the freehub. Timothy at bdopcycling was super-responsive and helpful. sent him several pics of the hub and freehub and he idenifyed it as the novatec hub that takes the TYPE B freehub. place my order with him and he said i'll have it in 12days (from taiwan).

    Thats great! Thanks for the update
    I wonder if they have 'anti bite guard' freehub for B type. I don't see it on the website

    Hey guys

    Any update on this? I've got the exact same problem. Performance says they will refund my money and help me choose another wheel if I like. But I would prefer to salvage the wheel if possible. They're nice wheels.

    I've been wondering if the freehub is the reason they stopped offering this wheelset. It would be nice if they could find a better freehub and begin offering the wheel again.

    John

    It is D882SB-SS that uses a B-Type freehub body.

    You can order the freehub from Timothy Barkley
    BDop Cycling Company Ltd.
    BDop Cycling Co. it will be a few days to the office and then 7~10 business days to you.
    think it was $35. seems better than the original.,

    I tried to order the part and didn't see anyplace on the website to specify the model other than:
    type A or B, Shimano/SRAM or Campy

    So I emailed Timothy to ask. His reply was:
    "Just order the B Type freehub on our website. We only sell it in steel for MTB."

    I just placed my order and followed up with an email specifying D882SB-SS. Has anyone placed an order and had the same experience? Have you received your freehub yet?
