- I have a serious grumble (nackered bike content)
new freehub body should see it right. find out the model and google that model and include the words freehub body. or give it to your bike shop friends and they will do it for you. defo worth doing if theres nothing else wrong with the wheel.

If it is a rebranded Onyx hub, what I have seen is that one of the pawls breaks in half, so the hub will still engage with the working pawl, while the other one flops around uselessly, making a noise.
If this is what has happened, it’s a cheap and easy fix. Cone spanners to undo the axle and take off the freehub. Parts are on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DT-Swiss-Freewheel-pawl-for-Onyx-hub-single-/161091823638?pt=UK_SportsLeisure_Cycling_Bike_Lights&hash=item2581d22816Posted 4 years ago
My DT Swiss freehub has started having a right old grumble. It’s suddenly started making a noise like all the rejected non-dropper seat posts in the world collectively committing suicide, by hurling themselves into a cement mixer. Feels much the same too. Though it still appears to work fine. There’s no play in it.
So…. What’s gone tits up here? Is it completely shot? New hub required? Or can the freehub be fixed. Is it worth it? i laced a new rim to this hub not too long back, and banged some new bearings in (well…. The LBS did) Help me please oh wise and mechanically competent ones….Posted 4 years agotorsoinalakeMember
Just check what model it is first. This may help:Posted 4 years ago
