    Hub Help Needed!

    Whats up ya'll? Does anyone know where I can find springs and pawls for this hub? Or if this hub is repairable? It looks like an abbah/lawill but i can't find the exact model and I also don't know much about hubs. I got this wheel on a used dirt jumper in 2013 and after a few years the pawls stopped catching on the teeth inside the hub and the freehub would just spin without engaging with the wheel. I'm not sure if the teeth are stripped out/ruined or if this is fixable, let me know what you think. Thanks guys.

    Judging from the picture of the hub and the shape of the teeth in the hub - I'd say they are worn out, so new pawls and springs would not help here. I'm not sure if that ring in the hub is replaceable, but given the age of these hubs I doubt you'd be able to find the replacement parts. Going from memory, Rigle stuff was very chi chi, but I remember that they had a poor reliability when it came to hubs... I chose CK or Hugi (DT Swiss) hubs instead, I think even Hope hubs were better, and GT hubs made by Hadley were pretty good except for the spring which would break after a while...

    It really looks like the ring is pretty worn in the pic. If it were me, I'd eliminate the guesswork and replace the hub. Buy a hub online, have an LBS re-lace it... and go ride!
