James


It's a great excuse to upgrade to a new bike ;)


however, if it helps, I have the DT Swiss M1650 spline in mine and the freehub came with the rachet system, it works pretty well although the freehub gets scarred with the use, it seems to be normal wear and tear... I think the XD type may be more durable and compatible with 1/12s as DaveS said.
I serviced mine last summer and didn't bother using special grease, the industry also recommends Slick Honey, but I went with a light nano oil that I use for precise mechanical parts of my work toolbox, it's light reduces friction and increases mobility improving the engagement of the rachets and does not thickens in cold weather, to be honest, I think that any seeing machine oil would to a good job. Most of the time these products (lubs) are produced for other purposes and relabeled for the bike industry and the price tag is double and tripled.


Good luck with whatever set you go, I'm sure it will put a smile on your face  ;D

Sorry to hear about the injury Pawel, I hope is not too serious.
Trying to stay as active as you can definitely helps, legs exercise from the ultimate work out from James Wilson may be also a motivation, long walks, healthy diet, and meditation to stay positive and you will be back before you know it, riding a turbo trainer may be an option too but if itís going to worsen your injury leave it out.

Speedy recovery man

Cheers. A bit pricier than I expected, but I'll consider it.
Defo quite expensive for what it is. The good thing you can always use it on other wheels or sell when no longer needed

I always find that it does not take that long to get back to the level of fitness for spins. I think it has something to with that in your head you know you have done it before.

Sorry to hear about the injury Pawel, that sucks . Hopefully it wonít be that long before your hand is better and that itís not too painful.

Whenever Iíve been injured I found it can be a struggle to stay positive but just know that recovery will be over before you know it. At least youíre not missing the summer months of riding.

As youíre fit it wonít take long to regain your fitness once youíre able to get back on the bike. Just donít push it too hard too soon.

Are you able to use a turbo trainer in the mean time?

General apologies to anyone you going spinning with (but sure that's not happening).


Just try and get out a little more often which helped me.

You need this set Aaron. Its a 10 minute job to install. There is also 36 tooth set a bit cheaper. I also saw a chinese version on alibaba for 5 eur but didn't want to risk damaging the hub. You can remove it when selling bike and use on other wheels etc.

I would recommend doing a quick hub service while you are at it. Check out servicing 350 hubs on YouTube, that's what you have on 1700 wheels. You will need a special dt swiss red grease for lubrication. I have a couple of spare ones i can give it to you. You only need a tiny bit
