I believe you'll have to undo the spoke at the rim end (Mavic uses a torx style head on the nipple). With the hub end of the spoke, looks like a ball but with two flat sides. When the spoke is tensioned it seats the ball end into the straight pull flange. This style is used in pretty much all of Mavic's high end wheel sets (Road or Mountain). Some have a plastic clip-on type cover. This can be removed with a flat head screwdriver. Good Luck!

Hi, Edurado for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

It's hard to believe a shop can't deal with what sounds like loosening spokes. OTOH, we Clydesdales are tougher on wheels than the lil guys. I used to break a lot of spokes under high torque demands, especially on several sets of Spinergy Spox wheels, then I bought a Park spoke tension gauge and meticulously trued and tensioned all the wheels on all my bikes. Haven't had a spoke issue since then.

Or you could get an old set of Spinergy Rev-X like I did a long time ago before I figured out the tension thing. If you can break or bend them you are not human.

A spoke on the rear wheel has snapped off how can I repair it?


Simply buy a replacement spoke. Unscrew the dustcap on the tyre valve and deflate the tyres inner tube. Remove tyre using tyre levers(as you do to repair a puncture). Next remove the inner tube to reveal the spoke tensioners. undo the tension nut and allow the broken spoke to fall out, feed the other part of the broken spoke out of the hub. feed the replacement spoke through the hub and into the hole on the wheel rim. Now screw on the tensioning nut to the spoke.Tighten up to the same tension as the other spokes. replace inner tube and tyre, then reinflate. Viola!

You may have a loose spoke or two. A rubber liner usually covers the spoke heads. If you do your own repairs, invest in a spoke tension gauge and the tool to adjust the spokes.

Squealing noise for no apparent reason rear wheel when freewheeling


Could be a bearing..
If there is a grease fitting - try pumping some grease into it..
Other than that - try some penetrating oil or white lithium grease where the bearing are..

Noisy Rear Mavic Ksyrium Hub


Sounds like a road wheel with a worn FTS-L freehub body. You'll need to have it replaced.

What happens is that the nylon bushing wears, causing there to be play between the freehub and the nose of the wheel. Once there is enough play, the freehub can actually vibrate against the nose, causing noise and friction - which is why you see the chain slacken. This is commonly called the "squeal of death," meaning it is an indication that the freehub body is "dead."

A new FTS-L freehub body should be about $50-60 and shop shouldn't charge more than about $20 to change it out. Just be sure to tell the shop one very important thing:

"Do not lose the metal washer that sits on the axle between the outer bearing of the freehub body and the outer bearing of the nose of the wheel!"

This is so incredibly important - but time and time again, shop mechanics will lose this washer before they reassemble the wheel, causing a series of nightmares with the wheel.
