    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.
