Hi

I'm thinking about building a new wheelset for my very old Scott Spark from 2009 (still works fine). This frame uses the old 135x5 qr rear hub so I need this for now but maybe I will get a new frame later and then I probably need 135x10 or 142x12 so if I buy a 142x12 hub - then I can convert to either 135x5 or 135x10? From my understanding it's not possible to do it the other way around (buy 135x5 hub and then convert to 135x10 or 142x12) without taking the hole hub apart and change all the parts.

Thanks for your inputs.

I'm pretty sure that if you get hold of a DT Swiss rear hub, a 240s for example, then you can use any axle standard just by changing the end caps.

Cheers,

Had a DT Swiss 240s rear 135x5 converted to 135x10 RWS, only the end caps were swapped. 135x10 should also fit 2009 Scott Spark, like many other frames with standard dropouts build for 135x5 skewers.

DT Swiss 142x12 conversion might need an axle depending on hub model. There is compatibility chart:

Industry 9 Torch classic hubs are also converted from 135x5 up to 142x12 just by swapping the end caps.
