    convert a shimano freehub to a Sram XD-driver?

    Is it possible to convert a Shimano free hub to a Sram XD-driver? I have a spare set of wheels that I would like to switch between bikes. One is Shimano 11 speed. The other is Sram 11 speed. Is there a conversion kit to switch from one cassette format to the other?

    Depends on the hub brand. Most major brands you can swap the free hub body. DT Swiss, Hope, Tune, Salsa, Industry Nine and several others are easy to swap. Some of the generic hubs can be swapped also but it gets a little trickier with them.
