Just picked up a 2016 Specialized Crux Pro Race........ yes the one with the proprietary 12x135 SCS rear end, and am wondering what my hub options are if I replace the SCS derailleur hanger with the non SCS hanger effectively making it a 12x135 rear end. I don’t want to have to use the SCS Hope hubs as I’d rather use something that will work on this frame and then be convertible to 12x142 in the future. Does such a hub exist, and preferably in higher spoke count since I will be using aluminum tubular rims to build a couple sets of wheels.

I think it was this company- https://nextcycling.com/blogs/news/scs- ... me-i-guess
But someone was making adaptor caps for DT hubs.
I have a buddy with an SCS Crux- He is using Enve 3.4 Disc wheels where he got caps and was able to use the 12x142mm thru axle DT hubs.

I believe with DT Swiss you just source the correct end-caps. Like these for a 180/240S/350 hub:

Thanks guys. So it sounds like essentially a 12x142 DT Swiss 240 hub can be made a 12x135 by just changing the end caps and possibly just having to redish the wheel?
