about to get a 240 10x135 centerlock rear hub, and will need to convert it to 12x142 axle configuration. Do I need any special tool to make the conversion? Is it complicated ? I will need both end caps and axle, but anything else required?
The Shimano centrelock lockring that comes with a centrelock disc brake rotor doesn't work with the DT Swiss hub, as you can't tighten the lockring down with a Shimano cassette tool on a thru axle hub due to lack of space.
The DT Swiss centrelock lockring tightens down with a Shimano bottom bracket tool instead.
