I'm swapping bearings on Roval Traverse rear hub, which is said to have DT Swiss 360 internals, 3-pawl.

Do I therefore need to remove the ring nut as per normal DT Swiss instructions? If so I'll need to source the tool.

There is such a small difference between the diameters of the ring and the bearing, are all DT Swiss hubs like this/is it normal??

    According to the spec, the Outer Diameter of the bearing is 28 mm but no tolerance quoted. Do you have anything to measure the Internal Diameter of those teeth with accuracy? Or if you already have the replacement bearing, try fitting it into the pawl teeth to see if it has clearance ? – Criggie May 9 at 11:06

    @Criggie The replacement bearing doesn't slip past the teeth nicely, though it will wedge in there, which does kind of indicate that the teeth need to come out. I suppose I'm after confirmation that this is normal for DT Swiss internals, and that however close the sizes seem to be, the ring is in the way and this is normal. – Swifty May 9 at 12:20

    From the website ''trouble-free performance, and easy maintenance are at the core of the Traverse.'' Lol – JoeK May 9 at 21:28
