    Hope XC Rear Hub

    Has anyone had ant problems with the freehub assy on their Hope XC hubs? I have had mine for about 6 months and while cleaning the chain one day and I noticed some grinding from the rear wheel. I removed the freehub body and it was deformed around the paw holding pockets ( not sure if that is the technical term for it), It was also chattered around the outer edge of shell. I called Hope in Texas and they sent me a replacement freehub for free. I installed the new part and went for a long ride. When I got home I had the same problem. Hope is sending me a freehub made out of stronger steel this time. I was just wondering if anyone had the same problem. Other than that the hubs are great.
    Thanks.

    Check the teeth in the hubshell itself for damage also. If those teeth are damaged then it won't do a bit of good to change the freehub body, you'll still have problems.
