Reynolds Solitude SE Question

In 2012 I bought a Reynolds Solitude SE wheel set from Performance. I may upgrade to an 11 speed setup but can't find out if the Solitude is 11 speed Shimano compatible. Anyone know?

Thanks
Tom

When you asked Reynolds and Performance, what did they say?

No response from Reynolds and thought I might get a better answer here than from Performance.

What is the size of the spacer you're using with a 10 spd cassette?

If you've got Reynolds' DV3K (except 2008 which used DT sourced hub), Assault, Attack, Solitude, or Strike rear wheels

Shimano Freehub Body for Reynolds Wheels

Replacement 11 speed freehub bodies to fit Reynolds Solitude, Solace, Attack, Assault, Strike and Storm wheels.

Comes with everything you need to run your wheels with either 9,10 or 11 speed Shimano.

That's the key. If you aren't using a spacer on the freehub for get a 10-speed cassette to snug up properly, then the freehub is not 11-speed compatible as it stands. If you do have a spacer, you just leave it out and the 11-speed cassette will fit. If not, you may be able to switch out the freehub body for an 11-speed one with or without redishing of the wheel.

How do I know the date of my current 10 speed freehub. My Reynolds Solitude wheel manufacture date is unknown.

I purchased the a set of used Reynolds Solitude wheels, that Ride and look like they were never used. But now I want to use them on a 11 speed bicycle build.

Sometimes a phone call gets more action than email. I have had occasion to phone Reynolds and a live person actually picked up the phone, imagine that. (801) 565-8003
