    Rear hub slips before engaging

    Hi guys
    Sometimes my rear hub slips before it engages, already check the cassette and that's not the problem so it must be the hub right? Any thoughts on how to fix this?
    Thanks

    I would tear into hub and at least clean and inspect. If everything is in good shape all that would be needed after a thorough cleaning is to apply lube and you're back in business (I use synthetic marine grease).

    Worst case, you could have damaged springs, pawls, or stripped engagement ring. This is the point where you may want to consider new hub or wheel-set vs trying to repair. It depends on what hub you have...many are run to fail and just need to be replaced.
