I sent Kyle an email regarding 11 speed and have not received an email back yet. Hopefully the group here might know or Kyle Foo can answer here.

I bought a pair of 38mm 10 speed in June or July and now have a bike with DA 9000 11 speed. Is there any way to retro the current 38mm FS clinchers to work with 11 speed. I did try to fit an 11 speed cassette on the free hub, dose not fit. Hoping there is a replacement free hub that will work???

Thanks if anybody has the answer

Which hub did you get? The Ed hubs have 11-speed freehub body option.

I think Leonard Zinn also had a post saying that you could use an 11-speed campy cassette with 11-speed Shimano drivetrain, but that probably means new cassette (and new freehub body).

Sorry, should have posted that. It is an EdHub, now to find an 11 speed free hub will fit on the hub (shimano)? and find out if that is all that is needed.

Thanks for the assist

I *believe* this is the freehub you want: http://www.bikehubstore.com/product-p/fh190.htm

That is not listed as a Bitex (Edhub is Bitex), but dimensions are identical and other BHS hubs are said to be "cut from the same cloth" as Bitex hubs.

The BHS hubs looks just like the one I need, I did send a chat request (they are not in at the moment) to make sure that just the freehub is all that is needed to convert. I will post my results.

Thanks all

I chatted with the online person at Bikehub store and that person did not know if it was compatable or if a new hub would convert to 11 speed. The hub does appear to be the right one, however without knowing that it will fit on the 10 speed axle and hub, I need to look more.

Kyle Foo, if you are out there please let us know so that we can purchase a new hub from Farsports.

FYI - I'm certain I read somewhere that China is going to be on holiday for the next three days.

I asked Kyle a few months ago and here was his reply:

If you want to use the wheels as 11sp, you only need to change the freehub, ED ceramic 11sp freehub 87US$ in total needed.

Mind you, the ceramic is likely more expensive than the standard model.

Well, I am 99% sure that is the right part, and replacing a 10-speed freehub with an 11-speed freehub designed for the same hub is afaik all that is necessary. I have an 11-speed freehub body on my Ed hub. This was annoying to me since I had to get a spacer to run my 10-speed cassette.

But it doesn't hurt to double check!

Anyone has problems with edhubs rear bearings? Some of my friends broke the drive side one. The problem started with an small side play after just some miles.

Some of them were usig the standard blue enduro bearings from factory but others the upgraded hubs with red enduro ceramic bearings

Yes. I had the exact same problem. Play in the rear wheel with ceramic bearings. I had to pay a lot of money to get new ceramic bearings.
I wrote them but they just said : we don't sell bearings separately.
I wanted them to pay since the say they have a 1 year guarantee. They didn't in my case. Had to pay myself and they ignored my email about them paying for new bearings.
Also the front is starting now but I bought a whole set while I was at it.
