Damage to freewheel body... question?(4 posts)

Damage to freewheel body... question?KeeponTrekkin

In changing the cassette, I saw the freewheel body for the first time (on two difrerent rear wheels) and both have small marks (knicks, burrs) at the small cog end. It looks like torque damage from the cogs. It did not impair removal or replacement of the cassette and the hub-cassette seems to be perfectly normal. One was titanium and the other is aluminum.

Is this normal? Anyone else seen this?

Occasionally it's better to remove some burs to help installation. For the remainder unless your gears are considerably out of alignment don't worry about it.
Never seen a used cassette body without some nicks. (nm)micha
