    Rebuilding a Hub - Nuke Proof

    I'm looking for any advice or instructions about a Nuke Proof Superfly rear hub.

    I've got about four years on the hub, and the freehub body now is as tipsy as a freshman's first binge. The whole cassette body wobbles. The axle is straight, and I know they (Nuke) used a modified Shimano freehub. Only noticed it because my hardtail needed some TLC and the wobbling cassette made shifting worse.

    So anyone have any experience in replacing a freehub body on a NP hub?

    Local shop hasn't played with Nuke Proof Stuff in years and said they can't get parts. So nothing lost if I try to fix it myself. (Trashed rear hub vs what, a trashed rear hub?) I've replaced freehub bodies before so I'm not too worried about that.

    <b>Any</b> help is appreciated! Thanks!

    the drive side bearing fits into the aluminum cup that

    fits into the freehub. It is pretty hard to get that cup out in one piece. I used an XT freehub on my nukeproof bombshell hubs and it works fine. If you destroy that aluminum cup let me know because I had a friendly machine shop make up a bunch and I can give you one if you need it.

    Resurrect an old thread here but @ol-crank you don't happen to have any of those aluminum bearing cups still do you?
