    I think you should advise readers that you can also easily remove a Shimano freehub from a loose hub not spoked into a rim if the cassette is fitted on the freehub. You simply hold the cassette with a chain whip and use the 10mm hex key to remove the freehub retaining bolt as normal.

      Thanks — good thought and I’ll add it to the article. It is possible with the more common Shimano freehubs, not with a freewheel or some other freehubs.
