I'm here to save the day! :thumbsup:Assemblur said:I've picked up a rear DT Swiss 240s hubbed wheel, and it's set for 135x12. I want to convert it to QR. I have bought the "DT Swiss Conversion Kits 12mm to QR Rear" from CRC, but when I pop on the two end caps, I end up with too wide a hub. Back to the order desk to guess which hub kit has the shortened axle. I find what I think is right, which is the 12 to QR rear for the 440s, because that's all I can find with what looks like the right axle. I turn to the DT Swiss hub disassembly document, but can't get past the locking mechanism inside the freehub and the hub itself. The document has a reference to a special tool, with no indication what it is or what P/N it can be ordered on.
Who's a 240s expert and knows what I need to do to get this thing apart?
You need this tool in order to remove the ring nut. Then the bearing comes out. BUT, you may not need to remove the bearing(s) if you get the correct kit. The tool is shown on page 25 of the 240s manual.
I'm having a hard time getting my head around a 130mm x 12mm TA rear hub though. I don't see it in the manual, you might need a new axle and a pair of bearings. The tool will help with that if you do need to replace the bearings and axle.
