    replacement freehub for 197 Salsa conversion hub

    Hey guys,
    I recently acquired a salsa conversion hub off a blackborow. the catch is that it came with an XD driver and I have no intention of changing my bike over to 11 speed. I assumed a 10 speed replacement would be cheap and easy to source seeing as this is a formula hub, but so far I have been unable to find anything.

    I believe that i'm looking for one of these:
    Freehub Alloy Axle | Parts & Accessories | Salsa Cycles

    any suggestions?

    Hub is made by Formula, one of the biggest Taiwanese hub manufacturers who make hubs for lots of brands. Ask at your LBS or Google to see if you can find a replacement.

    The shop said they could only get replacement XD drivers, and they wanted a lot for them. I already did a bit of googling and didn't find anything, which is why I ended up here.

    I think it's Formula FH-501, but they are out of stock (almost) everywhere. This looks right: Formula SALSA MUKLUK FREEHUB BODY FOR ALLOY AXLE VERSION - Mad Dog Cycles Bike Shop and Repair in Orem and Provo, Utah. But there is steel version available, these are cheap: https://www.ebay.com/itm/182247243100
