Mavic Crossmax SLR rim split. I want to order a new rim for the rear wheel. How do I go about it?


Either trust your local shop, or call one of the e-bay or Amazon vendors, such as Nigara, Bike Wagon.

How do I replace a Tracomp spoke on a Mavis Ksyrium SLR rear wheel? Can't work out how to release the hub end.


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!

Brand new bike. when gliding only there is a humming/vibration in rear end wheel or near the pedals


This could be a result of having the gears not aligned, i.e. low front to low rear or vice versa causing some friction. Also the wheel may not be in the guide properly, perhaps askew, so a simple realignment would cure it.
Good Luck,
Joe

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".

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.


I don't know exactly what you are looking for but I found a couple of links that might help you:http://www.mavic.com/medias/tips/pdf_dl/FTSX_0.pdf and http://www.mavic.com/medias/tips/pdf_dl/2008_wheel_user-guide.pdf Here is where I found these:http://www.mavic.com/mtb/tips/user_guides.aspx

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.

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.

Regards,
Corey
