    DT Swiss End cap Solution for 350 hub

    I am purchasing a new bike that is coming with Sram NX Eagle so its going to come with Shimano freehub on the rear wheel.

    I currently have a wheelset with DT Swiss 350 hubs that I would like to use on this bike. Instead of buying the a SRAM Eagle GX cassette that has XD driver I want to buy a shimano driver and the endcaps to convert my hub to take the shimano driver.

    Going this route saves a big chunk of change.

    Does anyone know about the lengths of the DT Swiss encaps? Specifically the length of the drive side encap. Since I already have the correct endcap for the disc side I dont need that one.

    Are all the DT Swiss Drive side endcaps the same length? I have found a set of endcaps that convert a QR 135mm hub to 12mm axle. If I just use the drive side end cap, and use my current non drive side end cap will this work?

    Cant find any info regarding length of the endcaps.

    The Shimano freehub caps are the same for 12x142 and 12x148, so your plan should work.

    Yes I saw that the 142 and 148 are the same kit. The difference is made up in the hub width. That makes sense that the end caps would be the same length.

    Im just a little cautious/concerned about the 135mm kit.

    They do list two a different kit for the 135mm hub. Is the difference in the 135 kit on the non drive side length? Would the drive side always remain the same length due to cassette mounting and frame clearances? Or can the drive side be slightly shorter as well as the non drive side to center the wheel in the frame?
