Hello,

I have giant glory DH with Hope Pro 2 rear hub 150X12.
I disassembled my wheels after the ride and the rear wheel fell down accidentally.
A part of the hub came apart - the cassettes with the ratchets part (the cassettes are still tightened on the ratchets part).
I put it together and now i can easilly disassemble this part from the hub.
Is this a problem? is it suposed to be tightened on the hub?

No problem! Those Hope II hubs are designed to for easy disassembly.
Just watch this video, and all will become clear.

Just be sure that freehub body is pressed back in place properly. It's easier to do if you remove the cassette. The cassette often 'bites' into the freehub so just yanking the cassette off sometimes pulls off the entire freehub body. You may need to lightly hammer the cogs back in the opposite direction of the drive direction to free them. You can then clean up the bite marks with a dremel or metal file.

It's common, and not a big deal.
