The rear hub on my Sunday Team somtimes 'slip' a couple of teeth , when I start pedaling ,

It says FSA on it but there are no hubs on the FSA website.
I took it to the shop (IH dealer) and they showed me the internals -
I was expecting to see the 3 traditional pawls but it is completely different and not very clear which part is not engaging.

Anyway ,has anyone else had problems ?
Can it be fixed ?
The guys at the shop are so nice I realy feel uncomfortable to 'demand' a new hub....

Well it shouldn't be a FSA hub, it should be a R. HUB WTB LASERDISC DH 150X12MM THRU AXLE hub.

That might be the first problem. Some hubs use the pawls, others use a star rachet thingy, either way now knowing the hub is a WTB replacement parts shouldn't be too hard to find.

I'm assuming this is a Sunday Team, factory, out of the box correct? You didn't get a special wheelset built or anything.

The wtb hubs are pretty horrible...I am guessing that is what you have as I know of others that have destroyed those hubs on their sundays.
