One of the reasons many stick with their component maker for so many years is that the thought of having to not only buy a new group but new wheels is just too much to stomach. That's why we're offering the DT Swiss 240s Freehub Body Kit. . Cheaper, easier, and simpler than buying new wheels; the old cog sets don't take up too much room and they're easy to eBay.
This kit works with both DT Swiss 190 and 240s rear hubs. DT Swiss offers the body in both Campagnolo-spline and Shimano/SRAM-spline versions.
When you buy the 240s body, you're actually buying a kit. DT Swiss calls the Campy version HWYABX00S1296S and the Shimano/SRAM version HWYABX00S1239S. Both come with both a freehub body and drive side axle end cap. The bearings are steel balls riding on steel races.
Conversion is easy. All you need to do is pull or unsnap off the end cap slide off the old body, slide in the new, press in the appropriate end cap. If you want to make it a bit easier, leave the cassette on when you pull off the end cap; wrap it in a rag and hold onto the DT Swiss 240s Freehub Body with the cassette as you're pulling.
