Morning all

I need a new 9sp freehub for an M525 Deore hub.

Would there be any advantage in getting a 9sp XT M765 freehub? Would it even fit?

    No, but there'd be an advantage getting a whole new Deore hub. ... delID=3310

    Use cones, axel and free hub.

    no advantage and it is a straight swap.

    Ok thanks I just wondered if the XT freehub was significantly more orsum in some way for the sake of a few quid

    I appreciate the whole hub is only a few quid more than the freehub itself I might get one and use it for spares

    Although the original has done approx 1,000,000 miles with only one adjustment :)
