Is there a conversion kit available for rebuild my Reynolds Strike for Shimano DA9000? I contacted Reynolds but haven't received a answer.

First off, what year? Prior to 2011, Reynolds used DT or KT hubs, depending on the year. If it's a DT hub, then you can use the 11-speed freehub that DT released. If it's KT, I'm not sure. The 2011 revision did away with the DT & KT hubs, and went with their own proprietary hubs. If you have the 2011 (and later) DV3K (like I do), Attack, Assault or Strike (like you do), I think you're going to have to change out the entire hub to be compatible. Although Reynolds did release an 11-speed Campy freehub for these wheels, they have yet to release an 11-speed Shimano freehub. Unfortunately, I have a hunch that they won't, since it isn't that hard to engineer the part, and here we are, almost a year after 9000's release, and nothing. Maybe, hopefully, possibly (let's pray for this), now that Ultegra 6800 and Force 22 (lower priced groups more closely matched to these wheels) have been released, Reynolds will see fit to release a freehub to make the wheels compatible. Otherwise, we're either looking for new wheels or replace the hubs we have now with something compatible.

For 2013 they do seem to have the parts available for Shimano 11, I came across this just by accident on a UK site but it does list the part numbers for the freewheel and different end-cap for the hub.

http://shop.upgradebikes.co.uk/Catalogu ... ds-Assault" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Replacement freehub bodies available for Campag and Shimano, 9 / 10 and 11 speed.

Please note 11sp Shimano body (21154) requires end cap (21236), also spacer kit (21190) for fitting 9/10 sp cassettes.

These can be found within the product information box to page right.

Great find! That's new, because my last search a month ago yielded nothing! Thanks for the find. Now I need to find a US dealer!

UPDATE*** I haven't found anyone in the US listing this for sale (online). I will call my LBS and see if they have it, though.
