    Convert regular 650b wheel to lefty, or just buy lefty?

    Looking to build up my second Cannondale Rush Lefty as a 650b. I've found a DT Swiss wheelset with 350 hubs at a pretty good price. Used, but not abused...

    If I get the wheels for less than 300.00, I know I'll have to swap out the from hub for a lefty, .

    Is it nuts to even consider this option? Thoughts?

    I'm not big on re-using rims, and you'd need all new spokes either way. Any reason you couldn't buy the wheelset, sell the front wheel, and then get a new front built to match?
