    To my knowledge, the front hub can convert between 135 and 150, at least I have done that. The rear hub, no, I bought a new 197 when I changed bikes, when I was previously using a Hope 177. That said, I have a nearly new blue hope 177 hub sitting here that I used for about 10 rides. Would make a deal.
