    2014 Control SL 142+ Rear Hub

    Can someone who knows for sure tell me if i was to swap the rear speci 142+ hub to a standard dt swiss straight pull 240s hub, if i need different spokes or the originals will be right. I want to run the wheels in standard 142mm dropout bike.
    Thanks
    I maybe getting older but i refuse to grow up!

    Try the wheels first, they might fit. Some bikes have enough room (2mm) on the RHS chain stay.

    Unfortunately it doesn't fit, i think i will just order a dt hub and change it over anyway.

    OK, but for what it would cost you (and what could go wrong), you might be better to look to buy a 142 wheel already assembled...
