Hey folks. I'm starting to think that the freehub body on my wheel is beginning to give up the ghost. Seemingly at random, I'll hear a -CLUNK- coming from the rear of the bike and it feels like the freehub fails to engage for a split second. I'm guessing one of the pawls is worn out or something? I can't really think of anything else it could be.
This has happened maybe 5 or 6 times thus far, but it happened twice on the 60 mile ride I did today, so I'm starting to get nervous. It hasn't caused me any trouble, but I would hate to be stranded when I'm 30 miles from home.
The hub is an 8 speed Shimano 600, the model just before 600 became Ultegra I believe (it has the 3 green and blue blocks on the label). Can I just get any old Shimano 8 or 9 speed freehub body and slap it on there or is there going to be compatibility issues?
