View Full Version : WTB: Reynolds KT freehub body - Campy. (or trade for my Shimano)

02-05-2013, 04:16 PM

I bought a set of Reynolds Solitude wheels from chainlove to use as an every day training wheel. However I need to swap out the freehub which is Shimano. I need a Campy free hub instead. Anyone have a Campy version laying around or need to trade for Shimano?

long shot I know.... Thanks

If all else fails, biketiresdirect.com has them for $60.

Thanks. That'll be my last resort. Got these wheels from chain love for $230 so I'm hoping not to spend 1/4 the cost of the wheels on a free hub body if I don't have to...we'll see

just wondering, would you need to re-dish the wheel after swapping freehubs?

Hmmm... I never had to re-dish other wheels when changing free hub bodies between Campy and Shimano. Maybe there's something here I'm not considering. What leads you to believe it would require a re-dish? I guess I'll have to call Reynolds and see if they dish their Campy and Shimano wheels differently.. Anyway, thanks for the heads up on that possibility.

I've only swapped out the freehubs on DT240s DV46's. The kit includes a different spacer for the drive side. No redish on those.

The info should be in the FAQ section on Reynolds site. If not, just call them. I've found them super helpful.

Thanks guys. I checked with Reynolds. Apparently the older Solitude wheels would have required a re-dish, but the newer ones (which I have) don't.

In any case I've located one from a forumite here. much appreciated.

BTW, For anyone else that has considered these wheels but have seen the reports of spoke breakage and turned off by the internal nipples - Reynolds changed them up. They now have external nipples and a slightly beefier spoke. The rep I spoke with said the breakage was due to friction where the spoke came out of the aluminum rim (caused by the internal nipple design). Ridley spec'd these on their high end cross bikes last year, so not sure if that says something... I ordered my set from Chainlove for $230 and I was delighted to see that the set I got was the newer version. Anyway, if you need a set of training wheels, keep your eyes on chainlove, they have popped up from time to time...
