    fixing a freehub

    I read over on the 63xc site about a guy fixing a freehub by getting into the freehub itself and jamming a few parts up. My problem, I don't know how to get into the freehub to get to the moving parts. Any tips.

    It's pretty simple on a shimano freehub.

    1: take freehub body off the hub
    2: pry the dust shield out of the freehub body
    3: see the two notches, find some way to turn these clockwise (it's reverse-threaded)
    4: watch 100 tiny ball bearings fall out on the table.
