    Converting DT Swiss OS28 to 15x100?

    Howdy.

    Is it possible to convert my Specialized DT Swiss OS28 front hub to a 15x100 (non boost) to accept a wider range of forks?

    I am currently running a 100mm 2012 Fox Float 29 and would love to run 120mm fork but the options seem limited to non-existent with 9mm QR drop outs

    This is the hub in question

    If specialized doesn't have kit to reconfigure that hub, which I doubt they do then you would have to manufacture something yourself. So basically, no.

    Check this website: https://wheelbuilder.com/dt-swiss-hub-conversion-kits/

    That may be specialized branded hub but im going to guess the internals are standard DT swiss. Have you tried popping the caps off? ..They have a lot of kits available..worth a try......
