In desperate need of a FH-HG50 (sealed mech) freewheel body for my build - see picture below.

In my haste and ignorance i damaged mine whilst attempting to remove the cassette :facepalm: :facepalm:

Anyone help me out of a pickle and get me out of the dog-house (again :wink: ), its for my Wifes bike :)

What did you damage, did you crack it (my M900 is cracked near the end) ? but still runs perfectly fine.

Might be easier to to get a scrap hub and pinch it off that.


P.S. FH-HG50 is Exage level hubs (300/500EX/LX style), old 7spd one. I've seen them online, part number is Y30H98010 http://www.cooksoncycles.co.uk/parts/fr ... ehub-body/ for far more than the hub would cost/karma's on here.
Unfortunately I don't have one

The shiney bearing or the metal seal thing (seal) that rubs against the rubber o-ring-type-thing on the axle.

If you don't mind a newer 7spd version shimano tech doc say the RM-40 (7spd) can be used.

If you can measure the internal diameter I'll have a look to see if I have one.
