Chris King rear hub disassembly
I noticed a gritty feeling in my rear Chris King classic MTB hub. I figured I'd open it up as per the manual and if I couldn't get it back to normal, I'd take it into the LBS and have them fix her up.
So I removed the cassette, inserted two 5mm hexes, held the left, and turned the right counter-clockwise (all as per the manual)- nothing. After 10 minutes of trying I gave up. Is there a trick to disassembling these hubs? It probably shouldn't have taken as much force as I was giving it...
Also, does anyone have a ballpark figure of what it would cost to get it serviced? Thanks in advance.
