Fulcrum Racing 3 Help

Postby richie-rich » Sun Oct 07, 2012 06:36 am

Hi i have just cleaned my new Focus Izalco for the first time after a sportive and the rear wheel when free wheeling is now very noisy where it used to be almost silent when free wheeling.
My other bike has Fulcrum Racing 3's and i have cleaned them many times in the same way with no problems.
I spray Muc Off cleaner on them and brush then use degreaser on cassette then rinse with hose then dry.
Have i caused some damage or is there something i can do to quiet it down?

If they have loose bearings then you could take them apart and re-grease.

chances are you have just washed some of the grease out of the free wheel whip off the cassette and take the axle out the freehub will come out with and pop a bit of grease that has been let down with a bit of oil and it will quite it down, easy to do i took mine apart last week to check everything was running fine as i heard the wheels had a very noisey freehub and mine was silent,
