    Eastern DJ Hub Service Question

    Hi!

    I have a 2008 Eastern Night Train and need to replace the rear sprocket on the freewheel. I could not find any information online about the Eastern hubs that came on the bike and Eastern's website does not have any manuals that I could find.

    I need to get the front plate off the freewheel to replace the sprocket but the freewheel does not have any locations where a typical spanner or cassette tool would fit into and I don't think it is one of the destructive disassembly type freewheels?

    See below pics. Is the front outer plate merely a press fit? I want to ensure it is before wrenching on it. Does anyone have any documentation that cover these hubs or knows how to free the cog from the freewheel?

    I can't quite tell what's going on there.

    At first I thought you were talking about a metric freewheel. Like this:

    But, this is a cassette hub, right?

    A lot of BMX cassette hubs use a one-piece driver--so you replace the whole driver if you want a different number of teeth on the cog.

    Is your hub like this one?
