    Coda freewheel removal

    Hi Peeps!
    This is my first post on this forum so treat me gently!
    Iím looking to remove and examine my rear freewheel hub from my old Cannondale Caad 5 bike, as its sounding a bit grindy.
    can anyone help with how to remove and whether or not itís possible to source a replacement unit.
    Many thanks,
    Smuggs

    Freewheel...or cassette? Does it have a lockring? How many cogs? How old is the bike?

    So.....are you trying to remove the cassette, or the freehub body? Is it Shimano, Campagnolo, or some other freehub manufacturer?

    CODA are Cannondale badged components of the late 1990's/early 2000's if I recall correctly. I had a 1998 Cannondale F500 mountain bike with CODA components.

    Hi cxwrench, apologies should have been more specific. It is the freewheel I am referring to. I can remove the Shimano 9 speed cassette easily enough, itís just the question of how to remove, service or replace the coda expert freewheel.
    thanks.

    If it's 9 speed, it does not have a freewheel. Go watch some youtube vids, then come back here when you know what you have.

    Sounds like he knows exactly what he has, that he has experience w/ a cassette but doesn't know how to remove a freewheel.

    I've never seen a CODA freewheel so I don't know which tool will remove it. You might have to bring it in to a shop, I'd look for one that has been around for a while. There are also videos on YouTube that show how it works. The whole gear cluster will come off, not just the lock ring. You won't need a chainwhip.

    I think he's using the wrong term. He says he removed the 9-speed cassette. What he wants to take off is a FREEHUB, not a freewheel. I think.

    I highly doubt you will find a replacement freehub for your CODA rear hub. Best bet would be to source a new rear wheel as it would be easier and less time consuming.
    You can't fix stupid.
