I guess it's unlikely you're using 11-speed in this set up, but if you are, then none other than Lennard Zinn has discovered that 11-speed Shimano, SRAM and Campag are near enough in spacing to be compatible. Had I just gotten a wheel change in a race with any of those wheels, I could have raced as hard as I wanted with nary a shift hesitation or skip ...

I too have made this blunder. The freehub buddy does work, but isn't in my toolbox. The simplest thing I do is to first have the body mounted on the wheel. Be sure that one of the two slits in the body is at the six o'clock position. I then add just enough automatic transmission fluid (atf) to the body so that it covers up to the axle hole. I spin the ...

Nice picture. But you installed the dust cover (the silver ring) upside down. They way it works is that the bearings sit underneath it (but do not make contact) and are protected from all sorts of insults and wear.

Going with a higher grade cassette will make the problem worse (much worse). Your all titanium Dura-Ace cassette will cut through your aluminum mountain freehub body "like ...

Honestly, there isn't anything you can do. As the pressure to make bikes lighter increased, engineers looked a steel parts to replace with aluminum. Your freehub body is a casualty of that fight. For my race bikes I have the same problem with Zipp and Mavic freehub bodies. You just have to suck it up. It's the price of lightness. A more permanent and ...

If you visit your local bike shops, there is a slim chance to fund a replacement. On the other hand, the most reliable and time-efficient solution is to replace the whole axle. In my region, the options are an Weldette unit for about 7.5 EUR or a M-Wave axle for about 2.5 EUR. Do ask around.
