    24 Hole Front hub-15mm

    Is an XTR or XT hub available for purchase separately from some secret place that I cannot find? Just about done looking. I want to change my 9mm WH -975 XTR 24 spoke wheel to 15mm but this looking everywhere is getting old.
    Thanks for any help.

    The only 24 hole 15mm front hubs are the ones out of the new XT or XTR wheels

    XTR 15mm front wheel

    XT 15mm front wheels

    ...but the wheelset hub bought as spare parts would likely cost double what a 28H/32H hub would cost.

    I've recently looked everywhere for a 24h rear hub and they don't exist off the pre-built wheelsets (WH-M775 rear hub freewheel fail). I can buy a 32h/36h rear hub for around $80 from USA and use it for parts - just can't get the 24h spoke unit. From memory, the front hubs were cheaper.

    The freehub assembly from the 24 spoke wheel and the standard 28/32 XT hubs are the same

    Y-3CZ-98040 freehub for XT hub

    Y-3CZ-98040 freehub for XT 775 wheelset

    Sorry to bring this old topic back up but has anyone been able to find these hubs outside of purchasing the whole wheelset?

    I'm trying to convert my front M775 9mm wheel to 15mm thru axle. I'd like to just swap out the front hubs without having to buy a whole new front wheel.

    I can't find these anywhere either. All I see are 32/36h available

    Re my post above - I got no further. Seems the 24 hole is only available on the built up wheel, not separately.

    Bummer. I may try calling someone at Shimano to see if they can help. Worth a shot...

    I know they get warranty wheels back from time to time. It's their practice to just replace them. So they will inevitably have perfectly good hubs in trashed wheels. The challenge is getting them to let loose of them.
