    DT Swiss XCR 1.2 Ultimate Edition hub - freehub body change

    Hi all,

    Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question, but if I wanted to change the freehub on my DT Swiss XCR 1.2 Ultimate Edition hub, could I change it to something other than a DT Swiss one? IE can you buy an aftermarket freehub body for it? Would love to throw a Hope freehub body on there or something...
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    No, DT Star Ratchet freehubs are not interchangeable with any other brands. But that is one of the easiest to service and most reliable hubs around, what is the issue with the DT freehub? If you want faster POE you just change the star ratchet to a 36T from 18T.

    POE has never really been something that bothers me. I would like to make it louder though, like a Hope hub >

    Less grease on the Star Ratchets will make the hub louder.

    Any risk of damaging them though?
