Hub Question

Ok I have a 7 speed 105 hub model FH-1055 laced to a nice mavic rim.
I also have an 8-9 speed 105 model FH-1056 hub lace to a rim that I wrecked.
Can I swap the freewheel bodies and axel, to make the good wheel 9 spd and 130mm instead of 7 at 126? Or do I need to swap out the entire hub.

You can swap the freehub and axle, pretty easy to.

Yep. You will also need to re-dish the wheel a skosh.

Thanks

I thought so, but wanted to make sure before I went ahead and tried it.

The cones are identical as well I assume.

Keep the left cone with the shell it came with.

Keep the right cone with the Freehub body it came with.
