- Pro2 Rebuild
Damn, after buying the whole kit for rebuilding a hub as well, non of the bearing presses are the right size 🙄 Successfully bodged one for long enough to rebuild my freehub into a working piece again though.
Those are half the price of what i had to pay for what I got as well. Just to confirm, it would be the Bolt-thro not the bolt-in that I need?Posted 4 years ago
Not sure if I’m missing something here, being really stupid, or I bought the wrong thing. I have a set a Pro2 Evo hubs. I’m doing a 10mm conversion on the rear, so I bought what I though was the right kit, but after spending the last half hour trying to figure out why my freehub was wobbling I noticed the new axle is actually skinnier than my old quick release one.
New axle right, old axle left.
Can anyone shed any light on this?Posted 4 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
So std thin QR Pro2 (not EVO) would need both new axle AND end caps for SStar 10mm QR to fit?
Yes – they sell them together. If you think it through, the 10mm bolt has to go through the end-caps to run through the axle and it ain’t going to fit through a standard QR skewer-sized hole. Easy enough job, though possibly worth changing the bearings as well if the hub’s had much use.
Also, I wasn’t very impressed with the SS 10mm QR tbh. I broke one and they don’t seem to give huge clamping force. If you can run to it, the metal-handled DT Swiss 10mm RWS is pretty good – unlike the original resin-handled one which may as well have been made of chocolate…Posted 4 years agomrelectricSubscriber
Cheers BWD; that’s what I figured. End nuts sits on 10mm OD axle, so yes….
Just rebuilt the hub so missed a trick, doh! Though as its on my Marin Rock Springs TARA, its the whole rear end that are the real wiggly bits…
Just a thought, does someone do a heavier duty QR skewer to fit the full ~ 6mm inner diameter of the std QR axle? Ought to give some improvement…Posted 4 years ago
