Replace Freehub? Or is wheel useless?
I have Cosmos Wheels on my Bianchi Vigorelli. Around 8500 miles on it. Ultegra 9 speed cassette, with the spacer installed.
There's some clicking and clunking coming from the rear wheel. I took it off and tightened the cassette lockring and everything, but it's the freehub that seems to be loose. It's definitely got more of a wobble than it seems like it should. And it's beginning to clunk and knock a little.
I did a search, and I've read where a few people mentioned that the free hub may be tightened, but they didn't explain how to do it.
1. Can a freehub be tightened, or serviced, without spending a mint on special tools?
2. Can the freehub, by itself, be replaced?
3. Or is the whole wheel done for?
Thanks in advance.
