I am planning to transition from Dura Ace 10 sp to 11 sp and am nearly 100% sure that my current hub won't work. Question is: Can I have my wheel "re-hubbed" with a new compatible 11 sp hub and if so, is it worth it vs. buying new wheels (original cost of my current wheels was USD 650 for the pair)? Any other considerations?
Looking at the DT Swiss 240 hub and I like my current rims well enough.
Your 10s shimano freehub on the ROL wheel will NOT accept a 11s DA cogset.
If the ROL hub uses a DT FH body, you CAN replace with a 11s one..and axle end..may have to redish the wheel. If it's unique to that hub(I think it is) cannot convert it unless ROL decides to have one made(unlikely, IMHO).
DT hubs, like 350 or 240 are now being shipped with the DA 11s FH body.
