I'm looking for any advice or instructions about a Nuke Proof Superfly rear hub.

I've got about four years on the hub, and the freehub body now is as tipsy as a freshman's first binge. The whole cassette body wobbles. The axle is straight, and I know they (Nuke) used a modified Shimano freehub. Only noticed it because my hardtail needed some TLC and the wobbling cassette made shifting worse.

So anyone have any experience in replacing a freehub body on a NP hub?

Local shop hasn't played with Nuke Proof Stuff in years and said they can't get parts. So nothing lost if I try to fix it myself. (Trashed rear hub vs what, a trashed rear hub?) I've replaced freehub bodies before so I'm not too worried about that.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Found it in the depths of Google, or was it Dogpile... anyways...

It is attached for anyone that cares.

the drive side bearing fits into the aluminum cup that

fits into the freehub. It is pretty hard to get that cup out in one piece. I used an XT freehub on my nukeproof bombshell hubs and it works fine. If you destroy that aluminum cup let me know because I had a friendly machine shop make up a bunch and I can give you one if you need it.

Resurrect an old thread here but @ol-crank you don't happen to have any of those aluminum bearing cups still do you?
