    Rolf Vector Pro Rear Hub Disassembly?

    I recently acquired a Rolf Vector Pro rear wheel that appears to be in good shape. However, the sprags in the freehub assembly make a lot more noise on overrun than I'd like. So I'd like to disassemble the hub and put a little bearing grease on the sprags to dampen out some of the noise.

    The problem is this: the hub was manufactured by Trek sometime between 1999 (there are "World Champion 1999" stickers on the rim) and 2001, when Rolf separated from Trek and began producing Rolf Primo wheels. Trek has now disavowed these hubs/wheels and has no information about them. Can anyone tell me how to remove the freehub body? The axle end caps rotate independently (and don't un-thread) so it appears there isn't a continuous axle through the hub, which seems pretty unusual to me. I can't find any exploded views or asssembly instructions on the web so you guys are my last resort. I'd appreciate any information you might provide.

    Regards,
    Bob P.

    The Rolfs were notorious for their beehive buzzing, there isn't much you'll be able to do about that.

    Not much info available on the net for these wheels, if memory serves me right. Axle ends caps are just that, caps, the Rolfs have a one piece axle, least my Sports did.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
