Solid wheel, poor freehub design
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a gravel bike wheel, it should be designed to take short bursts of high wattage from steep hills and going over rough terrain. I use these on a commuter bike and have put less than 1500 miles on it, mostly urban cycling. I stripped out one of the cogs and now it just spins in place because the freehub body is aluminum and can frustratingly only be replaced by another aluminum freehub body. Since I don't want to replace my freehub body every year, I'll be replacing the rear wheel.
The wheels have a 2 year warranty from Mavic. Did you send them back for warranty claim? Also, Competitive Cyclist says that if I have a problem with the freehub, that I can contact them and they will take care of me. Did you try this? What was the result?
