    Converting spinergy wheels

    I have a rear spinergy wheel, older 4 spoke design

    it looks to be exactly the same as a front wheel except the hub, can I get a replacment front hub or axle and make it a front wheel? if so any ideas where something like this would be available?

    Thanks

    You want to convert a rear wheel to front?

    I got a set of the Rev-X wheels (like you describe) on ebay a few years back (like 4 years ago) and the rear hub cones were shot (that is ebay for you...). I contacted Spinergy for a new axle, bearing, cones, etc. They were not very responsive. The dealer I went through finally got the parts I wanted but they were used (and, yes...they came from Spinergy).

    Long story short, I think that parts are no longer being made for these wheels, and the hub configurations on mine are different front to rear...changing would not be possible w/o drilling and re-bonding a new hub to the carbon. And I suspect the parts would be difficult to find...if they even exist.

    OTOH converting the rear to a SS is simple. Just get the cog and spacers and your are ready to rock.
    My ego is bigger and better looking than yours.

    Thanks for the feed back, the spacing is wrong to run it on my track bike as a rear, I may just see how easily it comes apart then, or sell it.........

    I understand that this is not what you want but thought I would post it as an option.

    I justed converted my rear Spinergy to a fixed gear track hub using Surly's Fixxer.
