    Did not find anything in search so forgive if this was asked.

    I'd heard that the new Roval Control SL Boost spacing hubs will not fit/work with the new Fox Stepcast fork. Something about the hub flange conflicting with the narrower Stepcast fork spacing.

    Can someone confirm this? It was heard second hand but I hope it isn't true.

    Best to call Fox and ask them. Doesn't make sense unless there's something very unique about the Roval hubs. Btw Fox will sell you the fork direct now, and the '18s are available, just got one (don't have Rovals tho).

    Has anyone here mounted Maxxis 2.8" tires to the Roval 650 38mm wide wheels? I'm curious how well supported the tires are with this wheel set.

    Running 2.8s on 31mm IW Rovals. Tire profile looks good, 13psi front 15psi rear, bike handles great and leans over hard no issues.

    Roval Control 29

    HI!

    I got a great deal on a very lightly used wheelset of these. They are 142 but i runt 148 boost on my trek fuel ex 8. There is a boost conversion kit available from specialized so no issues there. But the site says they haveto be redished 3mm. Is this hard? Can my local bikerepair shop do this? Is this hard? Do you have to remove all the spokes?

    Trying to figure out if I have tor correct endcaps (I'm thinking I don't) for the wheels I just picked up from my LBS. They are for my 2016 Stumpjumper 6fattie with the fox 34 front forks. I got the Traverse 29 110/148 wheelset and the endcaps in the front wheel are S165900017 and S165900016. Problem is when I clamp the axle down the front wheel binds and when I pull the endcap out of the wheel and hold it up to the fork, the flat surface on the endcap is quite a big larger diameter than the recessed surface in the bottom of the fork. I'm assuming there is a different endcap for the fox fork legs? Could anyone post the part# for me and a link where to buy them please? Thanks!!

    Hello Joe

    What is the spoke length for a set of 2009 Control EL from a 2009 SWorks Stumpjumper. And does Spec sell just the rim. After many years of use I finally trashed the rear.

    Front boost conversion

    Hi Roval Joe,
    I'm hoping you can direct me correctly. I have an old Control Trail 29 wheelset, and I need to convert the front hub to 15x110. Having trouble finding the right end caps. LBS got me end caps for Control Trail SL -- too big. Please see attached photos for details. Thanks for anything you can do!

    Hi joe,

    Sorry again for another road question, but curious if any of the current 29er control series could be used on a 2018 (non SCS) Diverge? Does a 12 mm endcap exist for road front axles? Suspect you can't comment on future releases, but lack of a wide carbon control wheelset for the Diverge Launch is surprising. Hard to believe that a clx 33 with a 38 or even 48 mm tire in 650b is credible when the clx 32 description says it was optimized for a 26 mm tire.

    Roval Joe - Can you verify that the Fuse Expert Carbon does in fact come with the 360 hubs?

    The description on Specialized's website just says: Specialized disc, alloy, sealed cartridge bearings, 12x148mm thru-axle, 28h

    It does specify the Roval Traverse 650b, hookless alloy, 38mm inner width, 24/28h, tubeless ready rims and DT Swiss SuperComp spokes, but does not specify the hubs.

    Thank you.

    @Whippet- SBC PN 30017-1100 is what you need to convert these wheels. 135 and 142 hubshell is exactly the same, so no worries there.

    @Tarekith- you are looking for a FHB compatible with DT 360 hubs (the three pawl version).

    @erict- the wheels will come with standard and torque cap end caps.

    @biketango- the new Control SL 29 wheels (25mm inner rim width) will work with the stepcast forks.

    @geronimodkj- your local shop can do this- no new spokes are necessary.

    @crfnick56- you have the RS torque caps in our wheel. The PN you need is: S125900006

    @JonAlderson- QTY 1 bearing 6804 (20x32x7) QTY 1 bearing 6805 (25x37x7)

    @kawczynski- apologies, that hub is an OE Spec hub and is not convertible.

    @fryeguy- apologies, I need to check with the road PM. I am completely focused on mountain bikes and wheels and steer clear of all things drop bar! Hold tight.

    @BKO- what model (alloy or carbon) and year? I can help with a PN after that.

    @AVLthumper- that bike model uses a Roval rim, but laced to SBC hubs. Those hubs are not with DT SWISS internals.

    @jdgang- 2009 is beyond what I have info available for. It is very doubtful there are still rims available in service to support this. Id recommend calling SBC customer service to double check, but chances are slim.

    Joe,

    I just purchased some new Traverse SL's from my LBS for XC use and was wondering if it's possible to get the hubs upgraded thru Roval to the Control SL hubs? I have to use a boost adapter for my stepcast fork and would prefer a proper boost hub.

    Joe, I am planning on building up a new wheelset using the Roval Control 29 142+ stock rims on there and I was wondering if anyone had the flange measurements so I can order the right spokes before unlacing the hoops?

    Hey.
    I have a set of specialized roval traverse 29 wheels off a 2015 specialized enduro elite 29.
    They have a XD driver.
    Would like to know what hubs they are so I can get a standard freehub to run shimano 11 speed cassette.
    Thanks!

    Hi Joe,

    Roval Traverse SL Fattie 650b Carbon. I believe from 2016. Can you let me the know the 2015 and 2016 PN, just in case? Thanks.

    Hey!

    The rear hub on 2014 Specialized Stumpy comp 29er has some play in it. I can't quite figure out how to tighten the hub to get rid of it. Is there a tech manual out there somewhere?

    2016 Stumpjumper Elite 29er, Roval Traverse with 3-pawl XD driver (freehub).

    Cassette spins in forward direction (clockwise) with very little resistance without the wheel turning. I.e. If I pedal forward, the bike doesn't move. Pawls also sound normal when pedaling in reverse.

    I was able to pull the cassette and driver off together and couldn't see anything glaringly wrong. Pawls spring out easily, hub body appears undamaged. I re-installed cassette & driver, then struggled to remove just the cassette. It finally gave way with a loud bang. The cassette does not appear damaged. Neither do the treads on the driver body.

    I assume something has failed inside the driver, but don't know how the internals mesh together to be certain. Does this sound like a correct diagnosis? I would rather not buy a new cassette AND driver if it's only one of them that is a problem. Thoughts?


    EDIT: figured out it's the "ring nut" inside the hub that is spinning freely. I assume I need a new hub now? Can't find any online complaints of this happening.

    Roval Joe

    Thanks for the update. I really wasn't planning on using the same rims over again. I would love to be able to re lace the back hub to a new rim, but like its been ask before I do not have the flange measurements for the correct spoke length.

    What set do I have?

    Hey Joe,
    A buddy gave me a Roval Wheelset and I'm guessing they wont fit my frame (135mm QR) so question is what do I have. Rim tape says 31MM, 28 spoke rear, 24 spoke front. 15x100 Front hub, and 12x??? rear. Rim decals is missing. I assume from reading other posts that this is a Hi-Lo non convertible rear hub. Is the rear 135 or 142? And are they Controls?

    Boost hub question: I'm considering the Control SL 25mm inner wheelset for a Pivot 429SL build, which has Boost front and rear. Do the Roval Boost wheels actually have wider hubs with wider spoke spacing, or is the hub spacing the same as non-Boost, but with added spacers to make them fit in Boost spacing? Thanks!

    Those are DT Swiss internals. The hi low hubs have actual flanges and Jbend spokes

    Hi Roval Joe
    I just picked up the new 2018 Control SLs Boost (with XD driver). I am currently using 2016 Control SLs 142+ (with a Shimano freehub body). Can I do a straight swap of the Shimano freehub body and XD driver between these wheels? Thanks!

    I swapped the freehubs today so the answer is yes, it works fine. The new SL's are sweeeeeet.

    I was going to answer on this, but I was hoping Joe would. Though it will "fit" there is a dimensional difference on the end cap for 142+. If you did 142 to 148, yes it would be a direct swap of the freehub/end cap. The hub shell makes up that 6mm difference between 148 and 142, but the 142+ shell is slightly wider and uses a special drive side end cap that's smaller for that shell in a 142 frame. I believe its only 2mm, and probably won't affect the integrity, but you might have a warranty issue, should that arise. You should look for a 142/148 shimano freehub end cap for it to be the proper dimension.

    Hi Roval Joe,
    I have a pair of roval control carbon 29 that I got in 2013. I just got a crux with front 12mm TA. Are there 12mm endcaps that I can order so that I can use the control carbons on the crux? Thanks

    Thanks bpd131. You are correct. Fortunately the new Rovals came with a 142/148 Shimano end cap so I used this.
