Greetings -

1. The Mavic hubs (8 speed) have a red plastic band around the non-drive side of the rear hub on
which "Mavic" and possibly "571/2" can be read.

- Is there an online source for info re these hubs, i.e., a manual or other tech info?

- Do these have cartridge or loose bearings?

- If cartridge, are they serviceable? If loose, what size?

- Exactly how does one get inside these? They seem to have a number of holes for some sort of pin
spanner on the "cups".

2. The headset (Mavic) has a rather tallish stack and has a black band around the top and the bottom
cup exterior is mostly black.

- Does it have cartridge or loose bearings? If loose, what size?

- If cartridge, are they serviceable?

- Any tricks or special tools to crack this puppy?

Thanks,

Cart bearings in the rear hub. They come apart in a variety of ways depending on the year. You need
a Mavic plastric pin spanner like the ones that come on modern Mavic wheels or use a red or green
Park pin spanner to get that cap off. That should take the left side axle off, then the freehub body
comes off.

Headsets are caged loose bearings. Loosen the 2mm set screw and unscrew-5/32 size, almost sure.

Wow! Is A. Muzi short for A. Mazing? I'm impressed!

You don't happen to have similar info for a later version from Mavic, the 571/2, do you?

Thanks, Andy and Peter. Last night as part III of the rebuild of my brother's Serotta I attacked the
Campy Delta brakes. Yowza, now there's a beautifully designed and manufactured component (if a
little heavy)! Upon disassembling the rear, I noted one of the circlips (?) on a linkage pivot pin
was missing.

Anyone know the size and/or a source for these things?

Thanks again for all your help -

I don't know the exact size but they are readily available at any neighborhood hardware store. It's
called an E-clip and IIRC the Delta uses a standard Campagnolo size but I can't recall if it matches
the GranSport Q/R lever or the Record front changer body. It is definitely one of those and usually
ten for a dollar.

Here's the exploded view schematic for the 571/2. Service is essentially the same as recited in the
prior generation's instructions for the 571 provided by Andy M.

Wow, the internet is a great thing. And the bike tech enthusiasts are too!
