It is my understanding that if I get a 9mm QR front dt swiss 240 6 bolts hub and rear 10x135 dt swiss 240 6 bolts hubs, that I can easily convert them to 15x100 front and 12x142 rear without much $$ being spent, am I correct?

DT doesn't make a front conversion from 9mm 6-bolt to 15mm, unless you buy the bigger and heavier DT 240 Oversize hub that also supports 20mm.

But one company makes a 15mm kit for the regular 9mm 6-bolt hub:

So if I get either the 190 or 240 in qr and centerlock, I will be able to convert them to 15mm and 12x142?

Incase there is no difference between 190 and 180, at least both are centerlock, you should be able to convert the rear to 142. Same goes with 240.

For 15mm front you would need either dt-swiss fifteen front hub or wmsracing conversion kit, not sure if it works also with 190 &180 front hubs, ask them.

Just to make sure, I am about to get the following:

dt swiss 240 15mm centerlock
dt swiss 240 10x135 centerlock rear hub

The front is good as it is already 15mm. Can I easily convert the rear one to 12x142?

Centerlock looks lighter too!

You can easily switch the axle and end caps on that hub to go 12x142

You will need the 15/20mm lockring for the front hub. It has a larger ID and uses a hollow tech outboard bb tool to tighten instead of the standard cassette tool you would use on the rear.

just so I don't do any mistake, if I am to convert a 10x135 centerlock dt swiss 240 to a 12x142 one, this is what I need right?

my hubs are the white logos ones, my rockshox maxle fits through it when I remove both end caps.

thanks
