SOURCE: freewheel on Mavic SSC-SL turns with tire/wheel rotation

Not sure if you ever got a response. I can help with half the issue. These Mavic SSC-SL wheels are a breeze to disassemble the rear hub (I've done so many times). I have these wheels on road bikes AND cross bikes. You DON'T need (nor want to use a vise). Yes, the one side is a 5 mm allen key. While the other side seems like it has nothing, you can actually (with your hand) simply grab the black axle and pull it away/off the hub. It will be a bit stubborn, but trust me, it comes off. There is an O-ring on the inside that simply keeps it sealed and on. Once you have that part off, you now insert a 10 mm allen key. With the 5mm in the other side, you can now twist and remove the entire axle and freehub. Careful, the freehub will now come off the axle, exposing the seals, a washer, AND 2 pawls that are in place by springs. Be careful not to lose the springs.

There's not much to it. Now simply inspect, lube and reassemble. Btw, this is also how you change your wheel from a Shimano hub to a campy hub.

Hope that helps.

Can i go from a 1" rear axle to a 3/4". I have a 250mm wheel and tire and want to buy a conversion kit for this, but all the conversion kits im seeing have 3/4" axles w/them

Hi Anonymous, you would have to fabricate 3/4" adapters to go into the axle slots unless they come with the conversion kit. Good luck

Noise on freewheel rotation when moving fairly fast, I think the pawls are hanging up but how do I get it apart/

Too take the Freehub off of the hub body is fairly simple on Mavic. You will need either Mavic Mineral oil, a lightweight mineral oil or other very light lubricant when you are done with cleaning. This can be tricky to find and you may need to enlist the help of your local bike shop to get some or the equivelant.

Here is the direct link to the Mavic service instructions with nice clear pictures and "how-to's".

Can you convert Mavic Crossride 9mm QR to larger

You want to convert to a 15mm through axle? You won't be able to unless you change out the whole hub to the larger one. If you had a through axle and wanted to go down to a 9mm, some manufacturers have reducers for that. double check - call a local bicycle repair shop in your area.

I just bought a set of crossmax st wheels and cannot figure out how to put the centerlock rotors on. The tool will not fit over the axel housing and I cannot figure how to disassemble them.
