I have a set of Roval 322x Roubaix wheels that is currently 10 speed. They use DT Swiss hubs, but I'm not aware of which model.

Would anyone here know if they can be converted to 11 speed, and how would I go about doing so?

Thank you!

The answer is the DT Swiss site. You have to identify your hub, then click on it's accessories.

Like this: http://www.dtswiss.com/Components/Hubs-Road/240s-en

Unfortunately my hub looks like nothing on DT Swiss' website (to my untrained eye). It has a 30 spoke 2:1 radial pattern, and tapers in size from the drive side to the non-drive side.

Like this, but mine is silver http://autobus.cyclingnews.com/tech.php ... ix_322X_RH

However the rotor/ratchet area appears to be similar to that of the 240. Do you think a replacement kit would work? While this wheel was slammed for being overpriced, I quite like it, and would want to upgrade it to 11 speed if/when I upgrade to an 11 speed system in the next year or so.

Obviously a different hub body, but there's this

The rear hub uses DT Swiss star ratchet internals
.

I'd be writing to DT Swiss to ask.

I've emailed DT Swiss (previously contacted Roval with no response). Hope DT Swiss follow up! Thanks!

DT Swiss told me to go and ask Roval, and Specialized said:

Yes, those hubs use DT Swiss internals, so a DT 240 11 speed freehub body will work on those wheels.
Thanks!


So I suppose we just need to buy the 11 speed freehub body!

My plan is to upgrade to 6800 sometime this year. Once 5800 is out, the resale value of 5700 will likely drop a fair bit. In any case I'm not really after the extra gear, more of the lighter weight + smoother shifting, so upgrading to 5800 probably won't help much.

that was kind of my idea as well. but i'm doing a half ironnman in july, and i figure my bike is 4 years old, i might as well do some upgrades. initially i was really set on the 5700 but then i saw the 5800 coming out, but i doubt it will be ready by july for my half, so thats why i decided to just jump up to the 6800, and i pulled the trigger tonight... i'll try to remember to update later this coming week and let you know know if theres any issues updating the freehub.
