Hi, I'm Jan from and we shoot here a maintenance video, so have fun.


In today's video I want to show you how to put back your cassette back in the in the bike, how to put the rear wheel back, in order you can finish your job, maintenance job on the rear side.


So the first step, bring the cassette back in and because it's such a giant cassette it's not... there's not that much space and then I make sure that the chain is over, like here, it's over the cassette. So I make sure that the chain is over it, I put the bushy back in and I did not show you ah... So it's searching for the hole, I put still some... I did not show you but it's better to put a little bit of vaseline over the axle before you put it in, did not show you, but you can do it.


So I use very little force on the hammer, then I have this bushy that I put it on the rear sides over the axle, then I take the rear wheel and now I'm checking... I just realized that it's very good to make sure before you put your rear wheel in, that you clean... you make sure that the rear wheel well is clean, otherwise right now in this job with moving the rear wheel inside outside, all kind of dirt will fall exactly on the freewheel and that's something you want to avoid, as I showed you in the video about maintenance... in the rear hub you have this bushy and you have to check with your finger which you don't reach that easy, here via the rear end you come in, you can guide the bushy on the right spot. Now it's in. So I put a little bit of Loctite here, Loctite 243.


I put this tool fully in, so on the other side sticks out the imbus where I can put this one on. This is like, not always to find the imbus, sometimes it's easier to just untighten it. Let me see. Ah yeah, now I found it, so with my left finger I push that screw to the right and now I tighten it, now I can release my left hand. And the last bit you put again a key 19 and you tighten it. So that's it, then put back the rear derailleur.


Then the next step is putting the rear suspension on it, take the rear derailleur back and when you put, when you put in the screw, make sure that it's perfectly aligned, because you can destroy pretty easy the fillet/thread of your rear derailleur. So this part needs to be on the top part of here, so that's important to do, then make sure it's perfectly aligned, the screw of the derailleur and the hole of the derailleur support and if this goes heavy, then you're pretty sure that's not good, as you are on the point of destroying the fillet/thread of the rear derailleur, which is not so nice.


Then put the washer back and if this nut is already... if this is broken, this blue nylon... if that one is worn out better change it with a new one, because if this one is coming loose it's not funny, because you might kind of lose the the rear suspension. Tighten it and that's it. This was the video of putting back your rear wheel.
