This shows that even some of the best products on the market may fail. What do you look at the first photo is part of the center than the freewheel body is installed.

The Wrench

I just had this happen on a SL SSC wheel that Mavic rebuilt for me (for $250)earlier in the season. The rebuild came back to me with a new freewheel body, which was very tight from the get go (the thing "dieseled", which it never did before the rebuild). With maybe 500 mi. on the wheel since the rebuild, i stood up to climb a hill and pop, the hub extension torquesd off in exactly the manner shown. This will be an interesting dialog with Mavic, given the age of the wheel, and the recent rebuild. I like the screw on Shimano freehub...

This happened to my wheel and Mavic said they would not do anything about it. They said maybe I hit a pothole


I just had this happen to a Ksyrium SL! Unbelievable that they would design something that could just shear away like that. I have a return authorization number in hand and will be shipping it out tomorrow.


had the exact same issue, not 24 hours ago. Let me know how you get on with mavic, we can see how consistent warranty claims are dealt with.
