    I’m not sure they are serviceable. If you want a serviceable one, you’d be looking at White Industries for about thrice the price; it’s brilliant, by all accounts. The Halo Clickster also gets good reviews, although i’ve no first hand experience…

    Charlie has a good selection.

    The piece with the two small hole used to unscrew with a pin spanner, then you could get it apart.

    Binned mine after 7 months on my day1 after it started bleeding rust (something about riding through floods).
    Got a used white industries on the bay which has been great

    Cheers guys. I’ll look to replace. Tempted by the white industries but it is expensive!

    Got one of these on my cx bike:

    Did a big ride yesterday, full of rain,mud and grit – by the end of it the free wheel was just grinding – cranks won’t spin backwards freely and it sounds bloody awful. Are these serviceable, or is it just buy a new one and replace?
