- Intermittent engagement of freewheel
This morning’s ride turned into a walk as my freewheel decided to spin both ways.
Shimano deore hub.
cue lots of swearing and started walking home..
on a downhill section, it then magically decided to work.. so i was able to cycle the remaining 1 mile home.
Is this a sign that the ratchet/pawls are being tempramental? are they sticking open, and so not engaging – it did do a couple of ‘klanks’ on a ride last week so I’m wondering if it be just better to replace rather than risk a long walk home again.Posted 4 years agoPete BMember
You can disassemble Shimano freehubs, clean & reassemble.*
I used to.
Then I decided it was easier to buy a new one.
That was before I decided Shimano rear hubs are shit & best avoided.
*Lots of stupid little ball bearings will roll all over the shop if you’re not very careful.Posted 4 years ago
