    Default DT freehub question: mtb disc and road

    Does anyone know if the DT 240 freehub bodies are compatible with their 240 and other disc hubs? I'm hoping to build a campy-compatible 700c disc wheelset. Thanks.

    Yes, it works. You'll need to use the Campag freehub body and the endcap supplied with it.

    I should add.....

    Take a standard 240s 6-bolt or Center Lock rear hub:
    +Add the Campag freehub body and it will work with 135mm frames and Campag cogs. No re-dish required.
    +Replace the NDS endcap with a 'road' version and the hub converts to 130mm. Re-dish is required. This moves the disc location however most calipers have enough adjustment to deal with it, if not thinning the adapter will solve the problem.

    The modular design of the 240s allows you to run Shimano or Campag disc hubs on 130 or 135mm frames.
    Both the 6-bolt and Center Lock verison are available in 28 and 32 hole. Nothing lower (yet)

    For bonus points match your rear hub to a QR15 front hub and 9mm QR adapters. The rear 240s can easily be converted to Syntace 142x12mm. This gives you some resale value as a 29er wheelset which will work with all modern XC forks / bikes.
