I have an old Hope Bulb laced to a Mavic 721 which I have bit had to touch for years. The hub is on its second rim with a good few thousand miles on it so has certainly performed well.

Anyway play has developed in the cassette so am guessing there is some slop in the freehub that needs sorting. Not a job I have been near before though I have swapped bearings in a front Bulb and have he drifts for that job but not a clue what I need to do to get shut of this play.

Can anyone advise how best to approach the job?

There are manuals on hopes website I believe. Essentially there are four cartridge bearings in the rear hub, two for the hub, two for the freehub, change them, clean and lube the ratchet, lose the pawls, swear, find the pawls, rebuild, job done.

Just found some stuff on doing it and none of my current hope drifts fit.

Cheers
