  • 10s wheel + 10s freehub body => 130mm wide, the well known setting up to now
  • 10s wheel + 11s freehub body => 131mm, wheel is 0,5mm off center to the left, when using 21t or 23t cassettes derailler may contact spokes (only with sprint rear wheel)
  • 11s wheel + 10s freehub body => 131mm, wheel is 0,5mm off center to the right
  • 11s wheel + 11s freehub body => 131mm (spacer needed to use 10s cassettes here, spacer is part of purchased parts package)

- Ventoux could be critical as well, as they are 24spoked. The "contact area" are the knots where the spokes are bended together...
- 0,5mm off center does not really matter... many wheels come off center and you would never realise during riding. Lots of frames might be off center as well..

Not sure if I've missed this but what about Generation 1 lightweights with the Dura ace cassette body?

I was wondering if I would be able to switch to dura ace di2 11 speed and simply switch my free hub body like I would if I was switching to campy. I would appreciate the help.

Ufgators, if you have a DT hub, yes, see my post above http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=103734&start=15#p952798, as long as you don't have a 24 spoke rear wheel. So if have you have a Lightweight Standard (based on another post from you), then you should be able to switch to an 11-speed freehub.

Hi, Im sitting with the same query, have you done the conversion and did it work?

Ive changed mine but having issues with gearing into the small cog (doesnt go into gear easily, especially under pressure) and a bit of rub on the frame.

Ive heard that even though you can convert Lightweight have advised not too as the spacing isnt correct and it will cause long term issues.

What about the older white Lightweight disc. Will that work with the 11 speed DT Freehub? I can't remember how close the RD is to the disc.
