    Question about Roval Traverse rear wheel

    Has anyone tried to change out the rear hub axle of this wheelset?
    From the supplied quick release, to a DT Swiss 10 or 12mm hub axle?

    The hub sure looks like a DT Swiss 240 but I've got conflicting answers to this.
    The Specialized "company line" is that while it's a 240 hub, it's "custom" so the DT axles may not fit.

    On the other hand, I've had someone who owns the wheels say they have swapped in the DT 10mm thru-bolt hub axle, and use the DT 10mm RWS with no problems........

    Has anyone else tried this?

    pull the end caps off and have someone w/ a lathe drill them out to 10mm and voila, you can now use 10mm thru RWS.

    Takes a total of 10 minutes.

    You don't need to do anything to the axle in you want 10mm RWS.

    ^^ Good to know ^^

    I'd still like to know in general, if the DT axles and caps will fit in a Roval Traverse hub.
    I'd personally like to run this wheelset as a 12mm x 135mm rear hub set-up.
