the more I read about pre-built wheels (Mavic especially!) the happier I am with my old skool stuff. My Mavic hub (571/2) has replaceable pawls, bearings (4 of em!), and etc. where the new stuff don't. Since I tend to keep things for a while, I appreciate the ability to fix/repair vs. replace.

ive emailed mavic today to see if they will help in any way. if i have to maintain them every 500 or so miles i can, just would of liked to have known.
if i can find an old style of freehub with the bearing instead of bushing i wonder if it will work?

Man talk about jumping to conclusions, never said i couldnt maintain them, just would have liked to been told an interval in manuel, ie; clean and lube freehub evey 1000 miles with mineral oil.
forums? just this 1. looking for a little help, suggestions, if you had this problem what did you do?, etc.
not looking to bad mouth Mavic, like i said great wheels..1 issue im trying to resolve.
if you can help thanks, if not keep your cynicism.
