Hi all, I am trying to convert an older (2009) Specialized Epic to a commuter / gravel bike, and I am wondering if anyone has ever adapted drop bars and shifters to a Shimano XTR MTB groupset with hydraulic disk brakes. It is currently a 3x9. I might also consider swapping over to a 2x, or a 1x if possible. I am having a hard time finding what cassettes will fit on the existing 135 QR hub. Has anyone else attempted any of this silliness ??

Your rear hub should be using the Shimano HG freehub body. Just look for cassette that are for that standard.
