    XD freehub to Shimano style freehub question

    Guys/gals,

    If I were to buy a new wheelset that comes with an XD driver, can I just remove it and throw on a shimano freehub that I currently have laying around?
    I'm watching one on ebay, but I'm not really looking to update any/all of my drivetrain components just to run them.

    Thanks!

    I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.

    If the hub is the same then yes, if not then no. For example on a Hope Pro 2 Evo rear hub you cannot install a DT Swiss 8/9/10 speed compatible freehub.
