    Aerospoke front to rear hub swap

    Is this possible? I've come upon a front aerospoke that I wouldn't mind using as a rear wheel. Can the front and rear hubs be interchanged? They just screw into the wheel anyway.

    Yes they can with ease when compared to a typical laced wheel lol.

    You can find the hubs via aerospoke direct...

    Thanks for the info happypills. Unfortunately, it appears that the rear track hub is the only one not easily accessible.

    I was under the impression that the rear hubs were epoxied, and to swap you'd have to send back to Aerospoke.

    You have to send it back to aerospoke to have the hub changed to a rear because it is epoxied. However, depending on the age of the wheel they may or may not be able to swap out the hub.
