    xtr rear hubspins slowly. makes noise with weight of rider on.

    I've got an older XTR rear hub and the thing is driving me crazy. It used to make a grinding noise. I rebuilt it and it was still there. after a while it went away, but itdidn't hold speed very well. Rebuilt again and it's pretty smooth but it is still very slow, and sort of makes a pinging noise when being ridden, but nothing while it's in the stand.

    I planned on getting new cones but it's too old to get a full set and I can only get the left cone.

    Any suggestions? Anyone have an old rebuild kit or an xtr hub I can bastardize?

    Is it making the noise when coasting? The freehub body may be shot.

    if it's a freehub/cassette style, make sure that the freehub body is tightened properly to the hub. for this you need a 10mm allen key and also need to remove the axle to access it.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Sounds like the freehub body. The internal springs and pawls may be bashed and floating around in there, causing the noise that's driving you nuts. Take it to a LBS and see if they can find a replacement for you.
