    Need quick help...Mavic Crossland hub/freewheel trouble!

    Hello,
    I have a problem with my Mavic Crossland's that is causing the shifting to go to crap. With the wheel on the bike and the skewer closed I can grab the cassette with my hand and wiggle it. When riding the bike, any climbing or quick suspension movements causes the chain to skip and ghost shift and I've been unable to adjust the derailleur to compensate. The bearing have been adjusted and sound and feel good but I still have the movement in the freewheel body. Also, the cassette is only a month old and doesn't show signs of wear that would indicate it's slipping on the freewheel body.

    What can I do to adjust the hub to eliminate that excess movement? My hardtail has Crosslands and it doesn't move like that. What should I look for as far as failures in the hub that would cause that kind of movement? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Also, sorry for posting this same thread in the MTB and mechanics areas but Iím working on the bike in the garage right now and Iím hoping to get some quick replies.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Mavic hubs require a freehub spacer behind your cassette. Go to your lbs and shop and get one.

    I believe that you're referring to the silver spacer with rubber o-ring that holds it in place on the freewheel body. If so, I've got one. Is that the one you're talking about or another??
