Heh everybody. first timer here. 1yr old Ibis silk sl, full 105, 2800 miles.
me: 200 lbs.

Velocity standard rear road hub. Need to swap out freehub due to the fact that the gears moved into the splines. First question: is this freehub likely a Shimano part or would this be a Shimano 'type'? possibly in aluminum? Next, I'm thinking that what holds this freehub on is probably a stub axle. In reading Sheldon Brown I got impression this would be standard thread (counter clockwise to remove). So I tried to unthread using two 5mm allen wrenches in the ends of the axles. It hasn't come easily and I'm hesitant to up the ante. Am I missing something.


Any thoughts appreciated.
