    Convert rr. hub to SS (AL or Stl) cassette

    I'm looking at getting a high end geared rr. hub and converting it to SS with spacers. I'll be using a wide base rr. cog. My priority is durability before wt.

    How durable are these aluminum cassettes at cog/spline interaction ?
    Do you chew/deform splines?

    Are there any high end rr. hubs with an option (steel /aluminum) spline cassestte?

    XTR uses a titanium freehub body - best of both worlds.

    From what I have read, you should be ok with wide-based cogs, but I have no direct experience in the matter.

    With a wide-based singlespeed cog like a Surly or equivalent, I've used aluminum freehub bodies and they are fine. One of my staple setups is a DT 240 geared-style hub, the splines look like new (never seen a multi-gear cassette). I do like the cog to be steel 'cuz they wear better.

    I've had good luck with Chris king Hubs AL drive Shell and their stainless cogs with no problems!
