    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.

    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.
