DT Swiss R1800 replacement freehub

Postby Leeism » Sun Sep 09, 2012 3:08 am

Hi All

This is my first time trying to replace a free hub so I m hoping someone can help me out. I have a 2011 TCR Advanced 2 which came with a set of DT Swiss r1800, I noticed today when changing my cassette that there is a few notches in the free hub. Is anyone able to tell me where to get a replacement free hub to suit, or what freehub is actually on it already? I am running an ultegra cassette.

Thanks

Lee

not sure what type of freewheel are on the R1800, I purchased a freehub for the 1450 mine from CRC.

On a side note, depending on how bad the notching is, it is more than likely fine. You may find that a brand new one will notch within 100km (like mine). There are a few threads out there on this like this one.

The notching issue has come up a few times and it seems there a a rare few who who dont get the notches on the alloy free hub. You can also get these but they are not a full solution as it does not cover/span all the free cogs.
