- DT Swiss QR End Caps for XD Driver
I’ve just got a new set of wheels which are 142×12 with an XD driver. I’ve also bought a second hand set of these, thinking they were what I needed to go normal QR.
Having just tried to fit them I’ve come to the realisation that they’re not! Apparently you need XD specific ones, part no. HWGXXX00S3115S.
Unfortunately I can’t seem to find anywhere in the UK that stocks them. Anyone care to point me in the right direction as my googlefu is weak.Posted 12 months agoNorthwindSubscriber
It’s an XD specific part but it’s just the same as the original one, with the “brim” of the top hat a little smaller, so it’s pretty easy to modify what you have to fit. It’s about a 20 second job in a lathe (even a little toy lathe like mine), or you could do it with a file if you’re patient.
Backwards compatible, too, though you lose some bearing shielding.Posted 12 months agofathomerSubscriber
bruneep – thanks, that’s now my fall back. Google didn’t find them for me.
_Ben_ – they where the only place I found with stock, I’m just pretty desperate so was hoping I could find somewhere next day.
mboy – have sent you an email.
Northwind – unfortunately I don’t own a lathe and don’t know anyone that does. File might be an option, though pretty sure I’d make a mess of it!Posted 12 months ago
