    I pop a screwdriver behind the edge and GENTLY leverage it off.
    (assuming you're talking about the old splined adapter they made way back when)

    EDIT: other idea, put the rotor back on, and "rock" the bike with the brake pulled (like you do to loosen a headset that's being stubbon)
    I've never tried this way myself, but it makes just as much sense.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    Thanks this worked, a lot of buildup over the years!! have they improved the design? or changed it, if I get what your saying the splined adapter looks like an IsIs BB design, Yes / No? if so then yes!

    need a pic to tell about the cog, post a pic and we'll see!

    yeah they stopped making that splined rear disc thingie awhile back I THINK.
    I remember originally it was because the international standard for disc rotor mounts wasn't established and hopes used 4 bolt, hayes used 6, rock shoz used 3 and so on and it was a big fugging mess. (so remove this adapter and just buy a new one for the next type of disc rotor was the idea)
    yeah just clean the mating surfaces well and toss it back together.
    another 10 years of use!

    I put a little anti-seize on mine. Seems to help a little.

    You have the old Disc-Go-Tech hub. I have the same one. CK now offers their rear hub with the ISO standard (one-piece milled shell) rotor mount tabs.

    When you put it all back together, put a light coating of grease on both surfaces. This will keep the parts from creaking plus make it easier to disassemble if you ever do so again.

    FWIW mine will be 8 years old this February and it's still going strong. Not quite as pretty as the newer ISO design but every bit as functional.

    ahh haa so that could be the answer to my mouse problem... been trying to track down that squeaker for some time now!! Thought it might be my Stem (An old Easton with some rusted hinges and bolts) I just got done ordering a Thompson, has anybody had an issue using Ti Bolts on Thompson products?
    Would applying grease to the mating surfaces just attract more dirt and debris? The corps has been good for one thing, Clean my bike like my rifle, Thorough! Id rather do this than attract unwanted hitchhikers!?!?!
    Thanks for the info!

    Anybody try ordering the SS ISO disc hub shell and replacing it with their current internals?
