What freehub do I have?
#1
Hello to everyone,
I'm new to the forum and I want to congratulate with all of you for your excellent work! Now we can go to the serious stuff:

I'm not an expert of bikes and I'm trying to fix my old TREK. The freehub is broken so I decided to replace it. It was not easy but, finally, I removed it from the bike. Now I have two questions:

1) I'm not sure I removed it correctly because the back of the freehub is different from what I can see online
2) if I removed it correctly, can someone tell me what kind of freehub is this? I want to buy the replacement Smile

Thanks for your help

What is the name of the hub you pulled from? Trek has been known to use generic free hubs on lower end bikes. If this is the case, totally douch it it light oil and try to free up the pawls to get it working again and re-install the one you have. Common on bikes from around the 2000 era. what model is your bike and the approx. year?

Thanks for the suggestion! The hub is a JOYTECH 97C...now I'm a little bit closer to a solution. I wrote to the JOYTECH customer service and hopefully they will give me some ideas.

I'll bring the wheel to a bike shop close to my office. I was told those guys are pretty good..let's see

Thanks

Good luck and post back your results. This is the problem when bike company's trim fat in the wrong places to keep prices down. I have had some decent Joytech hubs over the years, but when it comes to parts it is a pain in the rear at times. Shimano hubs and your good to go. You may as well service your bearings in your hub while your at it.
