    Broken rear hub/cassette

    Anyone ever had this issue? About 2 months ago I bought a brand new Trek Superfly Elite AL with Shimano SLX components. Today I was riding with my buddies and while climbing a hill and going over a root I hear a loud pop. I stopped and checked the bike over and I see nothing broken but when I pedal, the rear cassette never catches. I can pedal all day and never move. Luckily I could still coast down the hills but I had a lot of walking up hill on my way back to the truck. Anyone ever had this happen? I will be taking it in to my LBS on tuesday to see WTF!

    The freehub body failed. It should be covered under warranty.

    Shimano freehubs have gotten slightly better over the years, but they're still no match for heavy and/or powerful riders.
