The red spoke on my Ksyrium ES wheel broke. I got a replacement and removed the freehub, how do I get the spoke out -- can that be done without removing other spokes?

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!

I got a wobble on the back wheel jacked the bike up wobbled the back wheele so expecting wheel bearings. took it to garage and they vtold me one spoke had broke and the rest were loose. i was then told all...


This is very unusual for the spokes to get loose on a wheel. Without seeing the wheel, I'm betting that the wheel has been relaced at some time or another with chrome or custom spokes. If they used the wrong spokes, they will not stay tight. Since the spokes came loose this time, they'll do it again. I've seen wheels laced like this before and the "knobs" on the hub end of the spoke does not lay in the holes like they should. You cannot keep the spokes tight nor the wheel trued. It's best to have it either relaced the proper way or simply replace the entire wheel.

Good Luck

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.

Check if your spoke are tight enought, sometimes if the spokes are loosen the wheels will bent really easy.

Cant put my mavic back together properly


It sounds like you lost the washer that sits between the bearing in the nose and the freehub bearing. If you lose that washer, when you re-tighten the axle, the two bearings will bind and prevent the freewheel from spinning easily.

Take your freehub off again and see if that washer is there. If it isn't, you'll have to get a new one and replace it. It's easy to lose that thing if you don't know it's there when you take the wheel apart, because it'll just fall out.

When I reassemble those wheels. I thread the drive-side axle through the freehub body, then place the washer over the axle on the inside of the bearing, then thread the axle through the nose.

Also note that if your freehub seemed loose, it probably needs to be replaced. The FTS-L freehub body used on the Ksyrium wheels uses a nylon bushing as the friction interface to the nose, and this bushing wears down over time even with good lubrication.

Need to replace the cassette body on my Ksyrium SL wheel. Is there a tech sheet on this procedure?


You need two tools: a cassette wrench or socket (it's a splined socket that fits into the cassette through the axle)and a chain whip wrench. You use the chain whip by wrapping it around one of the cogs of the cassette to immobilize it and then loosen the lock nut of the cassette with the cassette wrench. It is just like a screw or bolt. The Cassette needs to be lined up with the splines on the freehub. Find the thin spline and use it as your "key" because it is the only one that width. Then drop the new cassette on to the freehub and re-torque the cassette's lock ring. If the cassette is disassembled rather than one piece, from the largest cog first on the bottom, alternate between cogs and spacers until you are out of spacers. The smallest cogs have these cast in. As you take the old one off, the installation technique is the same in reverse.

HELLO, I HAVE A DURA ACE 7900 MODEL CASSETTE AND WOULD LIKE TO PUT IT ON A KSYRIUM SL RIM, DO I HAVE TO PUT THE SPACER ON IT BEFORE THE WHOLE CASSETTE GOES ON? THE CASSETTE IS A 12-25 GEAR.


In my experience with Shimano cassettes on Mavic wheels, the answer is "yes" but i had a mountain wheel and cassette. The only way to know is to put it on and see if there is slop in the fitment. If there is, then you have your answer. i also had this problem with Mavic: i had to adjust the high and low settings on my rear derailleur because of the awkward spacing of the Mavic freehub. Just something you should be aware of in case you have difficulty with shifting after the install. By the way - although they are inferior cassettes, SRAM cassettes seem to fit Mavic freehubs better.

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.
