The frehub body on my FH-6500 rear wheel is well and truly on its last legs. I'm actually surprised that it's still on any legs at all since the Paris-Roubaix sportive in 2010 appeared to have killed it, but it's still rolling albeit very noisily and not very smoothly.

The 6500 series freehub appeared have been a fairly individual kit in that the Shimano tech manuals suggest it's not cross-compatible with other units. I tried and failed to use a 5500 series freehub body on there, even going so far as to get a replacements axle assembly, but to no avail.

So it seems my only option is to get the real thing, and hopefully someone on here will be able to help!

How about a new complete rear hub?
