I noticed my freehub was cracked when I was doing the whole drivetrain cleaning thing. I decided to take it to the one guy I know in my area who could slap a new/non broken one on there for me. Well, he can't. So I'm turning to you.

Here's what I know- Produced in the early 90s with a shimano 8/9/10sp freehub. Loose ball bearings. Branded "Dean" as in Dean Ti bikes. Called them. No info. Called Vecchio's in Colorado. No info.

Anyone on here have any idea of what kind of freehub body I need to use? It is a "Shimano compatible", but not Shimano Mfg. freehub.

Sorry. No pics of the rear. It's still at the shop. More pics to come. The front is just to show the branding

I'm gonna take a wild-assed guess that they're rebranded Mavics - Dean road and tri bikes used a lot of the full Mavic gruppos in the mid-90's and the chunky black aluminum lock nuts/spacers look and awful lot like Mavic bits.

what rim is it laced to?
