Is there a Tech document for Ritchey WCS Freehubs?

Just as the title implies. If someone has this document could you PM me or post a link?

Thanks in advance.

Here is a link to Ritchey's "contact us" page on their web site. An e-mail or phone call should get what you want. : http://www.ritcheylogic.com/web/Ritc...ain/21795.html

Ritchey said they will not release this information, hence the question here.

That's an unpleasant surprise. If that's their attitude i think I'll avoid Ritchey components in the future.

I'll hit him up tomorrow and let you know what I hear back from him. Might take a couple days but let me know if you haven't heard anything by mid next week. Are you asking about the new WCS hub or the older design?

I gotta ask: is it a coincidence that Waldo is replying in WheresWaldo's thread?

Ah, mycoatl, you beat me to it!

How to remove a Ritchey freehub:

To remove the freehub, you are going to have to remove the cassette,then loosen the set screw spacer nut on the drive side, pop out the axel with a light tap of the mallet, (to the non drive side) then with a 12mm allen, go in from the non drive side and loosen the free hub. Ritchey offers a special 12mm Allen wrench to make re-installation easier. Please consult your dealer.

This information is of little or no value. I pretty much got the same answer from Ritchey direct. They said go to your dealer. Well truth be told, I don't want to go to my dealer. If I have to figure it out myself I will post complete instructions on how I did it with no help from Ritchey.

When I joined I did not even know Waldo existed. He is in IN and I am in NC. He seems to work for Zipp so must have some connections, I am hoping they can supply him the info so I can actually work on these wheels myself.

I know a guy.
Working on the whole connections thing, most of mine are from the old days in bike shops.
I didn't get a chance to email during work yesterday but will do so today. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything.
