What do I need for my Pro II?
I am going in for a minor operation shortly (this is relevant – stay with me!) which means a couple of weeks at home. Ideal to repair my Pro II which I think has a broken axle (cassette /freehub are wobbling around alarmingly).
Every attempt in the past to strip a Pro II has frustratingly ended in failure and a trip to this distant LBS, as whenever I reassemble it it has just tightened / locked up when putting it back in the frame. This time I am determined to crack it, given that I will have some time to out-psyche it.
So what spares do I need to get in? It’s not been apart in years, so I guess bearings (it wobbles) – how many and what size please?
New axle – from Hope?
Pawl springs – from Hope?
Is that it?

Check Hope’s tech section for exploded diagrams and part numbers/bearing sizes. I’d suggest getting yourself some of their bearing press and seal fitting tools if you’ve had trouble getting them to work after meddling with them. Also worth noting that if you get Hope’s own bearings, they’ll be stainless, but will cost a bit more.Posted 5 years agorobhughesMember

Labyrinth seal(drive side)
Non drive side seal.
All done for you… 😉
Defo get all the bearings from kaesae.Just ask him for the full 5..
The only thing that is a hassle is getting the end caps off right at the start (Assuming it’s a QR rear). It can be a right barsteward, and for that reason, I pop mine off every month and give it a greasing.
