Replacement Miche Freehub

Postby Balaclavas » Fri Oct 11, 2013 10:43 am

Hi all,

Thought it was about time to pick the brains of the hive mind. Last year I upgraded from 9 to 10 speed. Everything went ok, but apparently my indexing wasnt great as I slipped the chain between the spokes and cassette climbing a hill, It locked solid. So lift home and take the cassette off, which took a suprising ammount of force and came off with a bang, then when trying to get it back on the lockring wouldn't pick up the threads.

I assume that I have stripped the threads in the freehub body as the cassette goes onto my other wheels perfectly, is that correct?

Secondly, where would I go about getting a replacement freehub body. As far as I know from looking at the specs for a 2008 Via Nirone 7 Sora, these are Fac Mitchelin RACING 28H hubs with a shimano freehub rebadged as reparto corsa for Bianchi, but I can't find out anything else about the freehub and what will fit. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Balaclavas

AFAIK Michelin don't make hubs so I'm guessing they are Miche hubs.

Take off the freehub and see if you can spot anything that looks the same online?

Oops, yeah, forgot to say that, FAC Michelin are Miche (under a diferent guise). I've heard tales of Freehubs looking very similar but having a different thread pitch so I'm a bit nervous about going for one which looks the same. Mostly just looking to see if anyone knows if you can buy the freehub anywhere or if I might be better off just buying a new hub.

Chicken cycles is the distributor for Miche, so any shop that has Campagnolo stuff in their windows can get hold of a Miche freehub for you... they cost around 30-35 pounds. If you don't know where to bang your head, give a shout to the cycle clinic on this forum, he can get one for you

If you have trouble finding one I keep the freehubs for racing box and Primato hubs. I have at least two campag ones spare in a box.

FAC michelin is Miche same company.
