Hi guys, in a rush of blood and beer to the head, I have just bought a HED Tri-spoke 8speed rear wheel.
I really want a front tri-spoke
QUestion: I have read that it is possible to convert a rear tri-spoke to a front wheel
Is this possible and if "Yes" is it worth doing and what do I need
thanks

I know you can convert a front to use as a track rear but not heard of this option. Would have thought it might possible if you remove the freehub body and change the axle. Might not look very neat however as the hub will look odd.

The old Specialized ones for FREEWHEELS were convertible front-to-rear. I do not believe anything current is.
