Freehub identification – help please!
I need to identify this freehub body so that I can get a replacement. It looks like a Shimano SLX to me, but the hub body is completely blank and it is fitted with cartridge bearings (don’t all Shimano use cup and cone?) and it is 6 bolt rotor fitting, with 142×12 spacing and 10 speed cassette. It is mounted to the hub via a 14mm allen bolt which goes in the rotor side of the hub.

Made by KT in Taiwan I think. Looks like the Planet X Dog hub which was like the DMR Revolver?Posted 4 years ago
Hi Brant, thanks for the link. It does look similar although slightly different in a few ways (3 lines across the body and unpainted spline bit). I also read in a few places the DMR Revolver uses a 12mm allen key for removal where this is a 14mm one (they don’t seem to make a 142×12 revolver hub)?Posted 4 years agoorangeboyMember
From the pic it looks very much like the one specialized use for cambers stumpys etc which are 142
Local Spesh dealer may have them on the shelf as they fail for a pastime.
There can be some very slight differences from one body to the next and Normaly has to be bang on to fit and not bind upPosted 4 years ago
Update: Hotlines have told me the hub is made by Formula.
Gold star to orangeboy, as it seems the same one is used in Specialized hubs – e.g. the one dismantled here: http://forums.mtbr.com/specialized/specialized-142-rear-hub-679462-post7678056.html#post7678056Posted 4 years ago
