  1. Lightly greasing the threads and splines of the XD™ driver. Install the aluminum portion of the TRS cassette on the XD™ driver. The alloy carrier is designed to fit tightly. This may require some added force in order to seat it fully.

    • The alloy carrier is designed to fit tightly. This may require some added force in order to seat it fully.

    • Ensure that the aluminum portion of the cassette carrier is fully seated and flush on the driver

    • NOTE: Special step for Hope hubs!! - If you are installing a pinch-bolt cassette on a Hope XD™ driver, you will need a special shim available free of charge from us. Please go to Step 2 BEFORE torquing the pinch bolt.

  2. Hope XD™ drivers do not conform to the XD standard and require a shim for proper pinch-bolt cassette function. There are 3 different thickness shims included. Attempt to install the thickest first as you want to ensure the hit is tight as possible. Note the recessed location on the freehub where the cassette clamps the body. This is where the shim will go.

    • Note the recessed location on the freehub where the cassette clamps the body. This is where the shim will go.

    • Grease the splines and slide on the alloy piece as shown in step 1.

    • With the 3mm hex bolt fully loose, slide the shim over the driver body and insert one shim edge in between the alloy cassette and the driver body. Then slowly work around the body pushing the shim into place until it is fully seated.

  3. Once the alloy carrier is fully seated use a torque wrench to tighten the 3mm hex to 3Nm. Grease the tip of the XD driver and connecting prongs on steel cluster. Grease the tip of the XD driver and connecting prongs on steel cluster.

    • Grease the tip of the XD driver and connecting prongs on steel cluster.

  4. Make sure that the bushing is installed. This comes pressed into the steel section of the cassette. Align arrow on steel cluster with unlock symbol on alloy carrier. Apply firm, even pressure on the steel cluster so its fully seated on the XD driver and alloy cluster.

    • Align arrow on steel cluster with unlock symbol on alloy carrier.

    • Apply firm, even pressure on the steel cluster so its fully seated on the XD driver and alloy cluster.

    • Using the chainwhip on of the steel cogs tighten to to the "locked" position.

    • This may take a decent amount of force to initially lock the two parts together.

    • If you do not have a chainwhip you can use a cassette lockring tool to lock steel cluster to alloy carrier.

  5. Using a 3mm hex key start to thread in set screw. Torque 3mm hex set screw to 1Nm.
    • Using a 3mm hex key start to thread in set screw.

    • Torque 3mm hex set screw to 1Nm.

    • The set screw just needs to be flush with cassette cog. Lightly snugged is plenty! Over tightening this will result in stripped threads.

  6. Using the 3mm hex key loosen the set screw and remove. Place the chainwhip on the single largest alloy cog. Install cassette lockring tool into end of steel cluster. While firmly holding the chainwhip turn the cassette lockring tool counter clockwise to unlock.
    • Using the 3mm hex key loosen the set screw and remove.

    • Place the chainwhip on the single largest alloy cog. Install cassette lockring tool into end of steel cluster.

    • While firmly holding the chainwhip turn the cassette lockring tool counter clockwise to unlock.

    • Remove the steel cluster from the XD driver.

    • This is designed to fit tight. If you are unable to remove by hand use a tire lever (something that will not damage the cassette) to help free the steel cluster.

  7. Use a paper towel to firmly grasp the bushing and remove. Using the 3mm hex key loosen the pinch-bolt. Pull on the alloy carrier to remove from XD freehub.
    • Use a paper towel to firmly grasp the bushing and remove.

    • Using the 3mm hex key loosen the pinch-bolt.

    • Pull on the alloy carrier to remove from XD freehub.
