Open up the hub completely to check it out. And unless your bearings are blown, tighten everything to the max.

Already did.. The wheel spins fine.. Can't be anything wrong with the bearings, it's just that the driver catches and stops then starts clicking.. Also it moves back and forth a bit and I don't think that's sopost to happen

Remove your driver from the hub and take a look in the hub shell for any flat spots. These can be caused by an impact to the hub or driver, and are often caused from grinding without a hub guard. If this is the case, your driver is simply getting caught up on that flat spot every time the wheel rotates around.

You can usually fix the flat spot if it isn't too bad with a Dremel tool. Just go slowly and make sure you are only removing a minimal amount of material from your hub, just to make it round again.

If you don't feel comfortable taking a grinder to your hub, bring it in to your local bike shop. They should be able to help out.

Tighten the wheel up like normal and check the hub for play. If it has play, then something's wrong. If not, then you're good. And as for riding chainless, some hubs tend to just catch a little bit, perfectly fine.

Haha. You got to get the big boy tools out every once and a while. smile

It's really not that bad to do, but like I said, you can mess up your hub if you're not careful so take it to your LBS if in doubt!

The thing I'm pointing at pushes against my driver and causes the driver to slick when I tighen the wheel up to my frame.. So I have no idea how to fix it.. Because I have to tighten my wheel and if I tighten it that thing will push against my driver and cause it to click.. When spinning without a chain..

as long as you can move the driver freely by hand when its tight in the frame its not a problem if the driver is hard to move it might be a bearing issue

I already told you it's fine if the hub clicks like that. The bearings are just tight and proper. As long as your hand can still move it, it's PERFECTLY FINE. The only time you have a problem is when the hub actually has wobble, shake, or play..

Loosen the locknut you are pointing at a bit, so then the Driver will be able to spin freely. Then if it tightens up again once you have done the Wheel up, loosen the Driveside slightly and loosen the locknut till the driver spins freely again, and tighten the wheel back up.

Not necessarily, the bearings can be crushed/damaged if it is too tight.

No problem. Everytime ive had to ride chainless or my homies rode chainless our hubs always click when we go forward. Aslong as it doesn't wobble and isnt over tightened. If you can spin it with your fingers its fine. And also, the driver moving 2mm one way or another is just the slack before the pawls engage/click. Nothing wrong with your hub. Just put your chain on and ride.

As long as the driver can still spin freely by hand & doesn't feel really tight when you have your wheel in the dropouts tightened down, it's fine. My guess is the bushing inside the driver is catching the axle sometimes from deforming overtime, just a guess though. Like I said, if it doesn't feel tight in the dropouts when you tighten it down, it's fine

Have you ever taken the hub apart? I'm not sure but that hub might be like the primo mix where it needs those small spacers for the hub to work properly
