    DT 240 Conversion Question: 1x11 freehub to 11 speed road 142x12

    I haven't been able to talk to DT Swiss directly about this yet. I've got a DT Swiss 240 rear hub on a wheel set up for 1x11 but I need to set it up for 11 speed road with 142x12. Tell me if the following plan will work:

    1- Replace the free hub body with this 11sp road free hub:
    DT Swiss 240 Freehub Body Shimano 11 Speed

    Now, I've got a 135mm hub.
    2- Then I should be able to replace the end-caps:
    DT Swiss 240s 135 to 142 Conversion End Caps Only - Modern Bike

    This should work, right?

    I just found your question from several months ago and I now have the same question. Did you ever find a solution?

    DT Swiss now makes a road specific 240S hub, 12 x 142 with 11-speed road freehub:

    DT Swiss - 240s straightpull db

    Hope this helps!

    it is simply a matter of choosing the correct end caps for the spacing and axel size + proper free hub body.

    DT 240's are ultra flexible. I am doing a similar conversion with a set of my wheels and am going to order the same free hub body in the link above for an Ultegra 11sp build

    Yes, this works fine.
