Hey guys I need to replace the freehub body on my hope pro evo 2 due to gouging. I have taken the cassette off, but I am now left with the arduous task of removing the freehub, anyone know how to do this or are there any videos on this anywhere?

    Put the cassette back on and then pull it...

    As said put the cassette back on, give you more to grab onto. Mine just pulled straight off.

    Here's a vid.

    Thanks dude, not just a case of twist and pull... seems like you can pull as hard as you like until the end cap is removed that freehub body wont shift

    My similar Trizoid won't just slide off, I use a wide flat blade screwdriver to slowly lever the freehub away from the rest of the hub.

    Sorry, I assumed you'd removed the end spacer..

    Also worth checking out the Hope YouTube channel, they have some very informative how to videos, one of which is a hub strip and rebuild

    so you did, that was the one I was on about anyway
  • Thanks people very helpful as usual. I switched out the alloy freehub for the steel version seeing as I'm using the slx cassette atm

    Correct. One is made of Aluminium and the other Steel.
