I've read about people filing down their 10spd hubs to fit 11 spd cassettes, wondering if anyone has specifically done it with the Alchemy Orc hub.

Thanks,

Alchemy has a conversion for Shimano users to go 11 speed. The wheel needs to be dished, but it can be done. I would contact them directly or work through your wheel builder if you don't have the tools.

Thanks!

I gave them a ring, super nice people. The conversion they offer is sweet - you have to send your wheel in, which is mildly inconvenient, but they do the conversion and give you a complete hub overhaul (new bearings, etc..) for $120. Great service.
