velocity Hub overhaul

HI guys...

I got a pair of used velocity spartacus pro. The rear hub looks like too tight and rough, after i take the cones off and the body cassette, how do i take the axle off? witch side of the axle do i have to hammer to take the axle out so I could clean the ealed bearings? anybody knows??? Velocity do not have a single manual in their site that i know of. If anybody knows where i can find one it would be super cool.

A sticky with instruction links would be cool

Thanks...

well its quite easy.

Take both cones out. Take the Freehub body cassette thing out. then hammer the axle out in any direction. I went from non driver side to driver side. But looks like going the opposite it will work aswell.

ut all together is even easier because the freebody cassete thing do not need any tool to set it back into the hub as campy does for example. JUst present the part, and turn it in into place. The prawls system is a lot better than other ones in my oppinion.

Thanks.
