    More info needed......kinda vague question.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    well I have a set of wheels with dtswiss 240 hubs and stans arch rims but the rear hub is for a geared bike and im putting these on my redline monocog which is a single speed. all the kits online that i have found are brand specific i.e. will only work with shimano hubs or origin 8 hubs, so im asking if anyone knows of a universal high quality kit or a kit specific for dt swiss hubs?

    any kit that is shimano compatible will work on your DT hub. All it is is a spacer set, a cog (shimano splined), a lock ring, and usually a tensioner.
    i'd recommend that you get a cog with a wider base than the typical cheapo steel ones that come with kits... they won't gouge your freehub body. chris king & niner are two examples.

    Surly's kit works well and their cogs are wide, too.

    I use the Spot Brand spacer kit with a Homebrewed Components cog on my 240s.

    You know what looks awful? A damaged rear hub due to COG gouging because of cheap POS COG spacers.

    Get a steel cog like King or Surly and use any spacers... you can even use ones from old cassettes.

    I'm currently using a Surly cog and generic ebay spacer kit on my DT240 rear hub. Works just fine. No need to get fancy with the spacers unless you want to. I would however opt for the wide based cog. ISAR's cogs are nice and have a nice wide base.
