    Re: Shimano XT M775 Wheelset Freehub fails ?

    Another ring to consider, buy a whole hub off of e bay. Then use the freewheel from that. Leaves you with a backup axle, spacers, caps and such. And you wanted the extra hub body as a cool desk accessory.

    Yeah, I did this. I bought 2 XT hubs from Chain reaction because it was better value than buying a freehub alone (Also bought 2 rear wheels and countless freehub boddies).

    Trouble is, they were both faulty from NEW, like every single Shimano freehub I have owned in the last 10 years or so, they would occasionally slip 1 pawl / ratchet during every ride. Just enough to ruin confidence in the bike, and ruin the ride.
    Stay away from every Shimano XT or similar rear hub from early 2000's right up to those from as late as 2012 (after that date, or SLX models etc I cant comment).
