The freehub has nothing to do with rims and I've not seen or heard about any change to Ibis hubs so when they have a microspline freehub it will work on their older wheelsets.MS only comes on the newer rims, is Ibis saying they're making MS FH's for older rims??? Would be nice since I have the 738's, otherwise will convert to XT with an old shimano FH (got one for $35 ebay) or stay with GX which has been a problem from day one 😡
I don't THINK this is right, but I'm not sure. I believe the newest wheelsets (i.e., the S35) have different hubs than the older ones (i.e, 938s). In fact, Ibis sells freehub bodies on their site and specifies they're for new wheels only, not older.The freehub has nothing to do with rims and I've not seen or heard about any change to Ibis hubs so when they have a microspline freehub it will work on their older wheelsets.
Good to know. Strangely the website lists the carbon rims (s35 carbon and s28 carbon) as having a microspline option, but the alloy S35 and 933 without. The S35 carbon also have a 7 year hub warranty while all the others are 2 years.FYI, even though they aren't on the website, they are available, at least on complete wheelsets. I just got a set of S35 alloy wheels with Micro Spline from my local shop. Ordered Monday, and have them in my hands today.
