Dawes Discovery Twin wheel hubs
I'm trying to identify the hub manufacturer on our 2012 Discovery Twin as I'm looking for a freewheel hub. The pic shows the logo on the hub.
Many thanks in advance for your help and advice
Apart from freehubs the other main kind of modern hub has a removeable splined part to take the sprockets but that bit does not hold the bearing or the ratchet track part of the freewheel mechanism. These parts are both a lot further inboard in the hub itself, inside the flange that takes the spokes. These designs normally have cartridge bearings rather than cup and cone. High end mountain bike and tandem hubs such as White Industries use that system. These are easy to service especially if you have the specific instructions - which I'm sorry I can't help with.
Hi Martyn, that's very helpful thank you very much for taking the time . I have managed to find an email address for Dawes so I will give them a try. The problem with the freehub is the cassette has run loose in the past and has started to wear the splines. The axle runs on cones and bearings . The freehub looks to be removable with a 12mm allen key from the brake side of the hub. Again thank you very much for all your help it's pointed me in the right direction.
Just a quick update. Emailed Dawes on this address -firstname.lastname@example.org- I was contacted with in a day or two and their support was superb, item identified and ordered . Can recommend to others, photos of parts required help.
