I obtained a used wheel with a Sovos hub. The cassette freewheeled both ways which is usually caused by thick grease and dirt preventing the pawls from springing into position. WD 40 will usually free these up. Since I had no use for a 32 hole hub I decided to take it apart. It has an Allen wrench nut holding the cassette on however the diameter of the cassette and the hub were too small to allow an Allen wrench to get to the nut. So I sawed the hub in half. These cassettes must have been screwed on by hand and the force of the gears would have tightened them down. Perhaps there is room for an Allen wrench in a large flange hub. I don't know if Sovos makes these. https://flic.kr/p/2gH94kc
