    Capreo freehub on MTB hub?

    In view of this from Canfield Bros:



    Anyone know if the above combination (ie. Capreo freehub body on SLX/XT hub) works?

    I don't think you can fit a capreo freehub on a SLX or XT hub.
    The inner axle is different to accommodate the step down at the end of the freehub (which allows for the smaller cogs).

    Can the inner axle be changed (ie. transplant the free hub and inner onto an XT hub shell)?

    Having had a look at the tech docs, it looks like an axle swap is a non-starter. Boo.

    Anyone else know any different?

    i think as well the depth of insertion of the freehub body into the hub body is different. rob english modified a capreo freehub body to fit in a non capreo hub for his superlight bike friday (i think it was!) worth a google!...
