The freehub on my rear Campy Scirocco needs replacing but from what l can tell the price of a new one is similar to that of a brand new Campagnolo "Calima wheel"
What should I do?....a) Buy new freehub; b) spend 10 quid more and buy new wheel and cannibalise or c) recondition old freehub with new bearings and replace the broken circlip?
The bearings are pretty easy to replace - 2 x 6803 2RS bearings I think you need if it's the 17mm axle - the circlip can be a pain to get out & replace (a good sharp pick should prize it out) but it's doable & will only cost ~£8 for a couple of bearings
The Campagnolo freehub is alloy & some boiling water poured over the shell swells it enough to push the bearings out/in by hand - never done it with the Shimano version but might make things easier than simply lamping it with a big mallet
