    Converting 135mm to 150mm on deemax UST

    Can you buy Deemax rear hubs in loose weight?
    or do i have to buy a new rear wheel to get 150mm?
    or has anyone build up a deemax rim with a traditional hub?

    I need some help, since i cant find any hubs from mavic on the web.
    Thank you

    And you won't find...

    any hubs from Mavic on the web. They don't sell them seperately. That and the rims, hubs, spokes, etc. are proprietary. You can't get them from anyone but Mavic and for the most part only Mavic components will work with the wheel system that they've developed. So what you'll have to do is find a Mavic dealer and see what they can do for you. I can about guarentee that they'll have to send the wheel back to Mavic. Mavic is pretty strict about letting dealers work on the product when it comes to rebuilds. We're a dealer at the shop I work at, and they won't even let us rebuild a hub. This is one of the draw backs of "factory" wheels. At least Mavic factory wheels.

    That suck IMO... im not gonna bother sending a wheel to mavis and let them rebuild it to a 150mm hub.. thanks for the "insider" know-how .. think ill try and sell the rear wheel and buy a new.. i loose some money, but still better.. might go with a pro 2 on a ex729 as a alternative
