Good service from SJS Cycles with this, not many places had them in stock but found one on SJS website. Was posted out quickly and went straight on with no problems.

As the wheel bearings run in the freehub my back wheel sounds nice and quiet again now

Compatibility with R500 hub
13 Jan 2018
Hello, I have a 2012 Giro with R500 wheels and 9 speed cassette. The free hub is clunky and I reckon I'll need to address this soon. Is this freehub a compatible replacement, and is it superior to the original? Cheers Tony
Hi there,

Yes this will be compatible, it will likely be the direct replacement and of the same quality.

will this accept a 7 speed cassette with a spacer and do you stock the spacer
17 Nov 2017

With a spacer this freehub body will indeed take a 7spd cassette. The spacers we recommend are SJSC part 45468.

Does The Free Hub Include The Small Internal Ball Bearings?
25 Apr 2017

The freehub includes the small bearings that allow it to spin but it does not include the main axle bearings that also sit inside of it.

What Speed Cassette Will These Freehubs Take? 10? 11?
18 Jun 2015

This freehub is designed to be fitted to the WH-R500/501 wheels which are all 10spd, that said you could also fit 8 or 9spd cassettes to them as well.
