    Using hubs from a Stumpy 26" wheel to build a 29" wheel?

    Does anybody know if I can use the HI LO specialized hubs from a 26" Stumpjumper to build a set of wheels for my 29" Epic?

    Using the correct length spokes would allow that. One of the online spoke length calculators and some careful measurements of the dimensions of the hubs would net you spoke lengths.

    Assuming those hubs are nothing special (standard OEM) and you have nothing exotic planned, you can buy a set of decent wheels cheaper than you can build a set up.

    Thanks guys. I don't have anything too crazy planned - Specialized has the 142+ rear spacing so I'd prefer to stick with the OEM hub. I was planning to have my LBS lace a Stans Crest rim to an OEM hub, to give me a bit lighter set of wheels to race on.
