    Fat hub compatibility question

    Hey all, I think I know the answer but I want to double check with you guys.

    The owner of my LBS is pulling the wheels off his 2014 Beargrease XX1, from what I can tell that means 12x177mm hub out back and 15x142mm up front. I have a 2013 Mukluk 3, which from memory is 170mm out back and 135mm up front.

    I can't use the Beargrease wheels on my Mukluk can I? He said he would sell them cheap, but I don't think it's going to work.

    They are 'conversion' hubs, you can swap out the end caps to most any size including quick release.. Should work

    Yeah. The only fly in the ointment would be if your Muk has a 135mm fork and his hub has the 150mm shell.
    Salsa does both... They convert the 135 hub to 150 and back but you can't put the dedicated 150 hub into a 135 fork.

    There's a joke here about the bike shop being the ones to ask, but I can't think of a clever way to say it.

    Thanks guys, I might have been wrong about this one. Now to see if it's worth paying to go from the Unholy Darryls to the drilled out version, weight savings is less than 200 grams.

    To be fair to my LBS, I was asking about building a new wheelset and he mentioned he would be selling his for a song if I was interested. I probably should have asked him about compatibility. Apparently he's got some Nextie rims in the shop as well. I need to start making more money...

    Sun Ringle' Mulefuts are like 20 or 30 grams lighter than Holy Darryls and cost a little less. They set up tubeless easier also.
    If your Muk has a 135mm fork, look at Bike Hub Store's fat bike hubs. I just used their 135 front on my son's bike and it built up NICE. The front is 85 bucks and the rear is 140.
