Hi all,

I'm starting my first MTB build, and I've gotten a good deal on a pair of DT Swiss E1900 29er Enduro wheels. The only thing is that they are equipped with a SRAM XD freehub body on the DT 370 rear hub, and I'd like to spec a Shimano XT M8000 groupset. Is there a way to convert the driver from SRAM XD to a Shimano freehub body, or should I give in and run a SRAM 1130 10-42t cassette as a compromise? Thanks! :beerchug:

Edit: it's concerning the freehub body I guess, not the driver.

Use a SRAM cassette, more range and usually lighter.

Thank you both for the insights! It's good to know I have some options, and this "deal" wasn't too bad after all!
