    Swapping wheels with XD and Shimano 11 spd cassettes

    I have 1x11 SRAM GX drivetrain currently on my Farley. XD driver, 10-42 cassette. Can I add a wheelset with a Shimano freehub and 11-42 cassette, and swap them without issue? My gut says indexing will be messed up and it won't work, but hoping I'm wrong.

    If not, I can change to an XD driver and match the cassettes, but if I can just swap them in and out that would be awesome. Thanks

    If your SRAM GX requires a XD Driver, then you new wheel(s) will require an XD Driver. As long as the XD driver is compatible to you new hub.
