    should be in the workshop section. Usual Mavic problem with the worn out plastic bushing... remove freehub and clean/oil. If the problem persists, get a new freehub

    What Ugo said. I'd buy a chain whip and a cassette lockring removal tool as it's a simple enough job to remove the cassette and to clean and relube the freehub. Look up Mavic death squeal on you tube. lots of videos there.

    Much cheaper than going the LBS route.
