    Dt Swiss 350

    I recently picked up a Redline Monocog 2014 and I want to swap the wheels out and use the Dt Swiss 350 hubs.

    Can anyone help me understand which Dt Swiss 350 hub I need for the rear?

    Would it be the 350 Disc Brake ISO?

    If so, what else do I need to make it compatible with my bike?

    either disc model should work, but if you have a six bolt rotor you want to put on then ISO is the one you want.

    I don't know how the monocog's dropouts will work with a quick release axle (I do see it comes with a bolt on rear wheel).
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Those dt350 hubs/wheels are available cheap from all the santa cruz guys that upgrade their wheels.
    they will also take the 54pt ratchets upgrade (i heard)

    Don't run a Q/R on that frame. You can upgrade a 240 hub to use bolts and maybe the same case w/ 350's - not sure though.

    I can't tell looking at the specs for 2014 what the rear hub spacing is but earlier models were 110mm. I'm guessing this changed at some point but you'd want to confirm this.

    I run a 240 w/ the standard ratchet and find that engagement is quick enough in rock gardens and similar situations.

    The bearings in the 240 and 350 are the big separator between these models. I built a wheelset w/ a 240 out back and a 350 up front and the bearings in the 350 are shot after two seasons while the 240's are so smooth.

    AFAIK the regular geared 240 hubs (and 350s) do not have the threads for bolt on use, just the singlespeed hub. DT should be able to tell you for sure.

    You can upgrade to the RWS skewer system though (135x10 rear, 100x9 front - kinda like a through axle designed to fit standard QR dropouts). I did this with my front and it has been terrific. You may still need a chain tug of some kind but it is a much more solid system than a normal QR.

    My SS 240 came set up in a Q/R configuration. The hub itself isn't threaded but rather the adaptors. I think it would work the same with hubs that have a wider cassette body but I don't know for sure.
