    Dt Swiss hub replacement from boost to non-boost

    Quick question- I have a spare boost wheelset that I want to use for a project. The front wheel has a DT Swiss 350 boost hub however the fork I want to use is non-boost. Iím thinking of switching the hub to a 350 non-boost to fit the fork while trying to retain the spokes and rim. My question is, can I re-use the spokes or will I need to get longer spokes?

    Your spokes will need to be 1mm shorter. It will probably work.

    That 1mm difference should be able to be taken up in the nipples, right?
