Exotic Shimano Hub questions.

Hi guys, for no good reason I've fallen in love with the idea of getting ahold of a wheelset with the shimano silent clutch setup. I've come across a lot of WON'T WORK WITH in the compatibility charts, it seems to be right up there with the 10 speed only dura ace hubs... well I've been digging and I can come across old nexave replacement parts etc, modernish hub bodies that say their for roller brakes, will these modernish hubs work with the old nexave silent clutch bodies?!?!? I'm trying to figure out if there's any more commonly available hubs that can accept this body, or silent alternatives I just don't know about?

Oh and I do know about the Shimano IGH's but I'm leaning away from that.

Hello!

I take it you want to run a 8 or 9 speed cassette but have the advantage of the silent clutch hub feature?

I'm inquiring because I've found a guy locally who has a selection of 700c wheels, 1/2 dozen or so have the
Silent Clutch 7 speed cassette rear hub.

Let me know if this is what you're looking for.

Thanks!

Actually I'm looking to get my hands on the original 7 speed style, but I'm just trying to figure out what is actually easiest! PM sent.

Get the 7-speed hub if you want to run a 7-speed Shimano Hyperglide cassette.

Get the 8-speed hub if you want to run an 8-speed, 9-speed, or 10-speed Shimano Hyperglide cassette.

Thanks for the tip Kurt, looks like I can run a 11-28 with a 7 that's tons of range for me.

I happen to have a silient clutch 7 spd wheel I got at a swap. I found a Shimano document on it when I wanted to disassemble it for cleaning. Shimano stated it is not recommended to remove the freehub body from the clutch specific hubshell. It is not compatible with other standard freehubs. It also stated, it doesn't require servicing (ie. flushing the dirt out of a freehub or freewheel and relubing), its clutch is sealed. When the unit wears out, you toss it. Also, the freehub body is torqued onto the hubshell quite tight, unlike a standard freehub. I couldn't loosen mine without fear of possible damage.

+1. The silent-clutch freehub internals are unique (just as the oldest Uniglide hubs are similarly unique in their internals) and not serviceable (unlike the rest of Shimano's so-called standardized bits).
