Doing a bit cleaning, got to taking the cassette off the rear hub (Hope evo2) had a few issues,
- the alloy cassette (gold bit) came away from the hub flange, but remained inside the cassette.
- difficult to remove cassette from barrel
- lots of burring on the splines on the barrel
- Cleaned everything, re-greased but its difficult to reassemble and tighten.
Is this normal? is it worth speaking to Hope to get/buy a replacement? I understand they do a steel version, would it be worth getting one, in spite of increased weight?
grateful for any helpful advice
