- Gravel groupsets and MTB hubs: any compatability issues to avoid?
Looking at a gravel frameset with 15×100 front and 12 x 142 rear axle standards.
Anything stopping me repurposing a 29er wheelset?
How do the sram/ shimano cassettes play with hope mtb freehub?
Any disc brake alignment issues – the frame has a flat disc brake mount?

or can gravel groupsets (rival, apex) use mtb casettes?Posted 7 months ago
There are some issues. I got a set of 29er wheels but needed a new freehub to allow 11spd road cassettes to work. Cassette depth is different between road and MTB.
Edit: dt Swiss hubs with Shimano cassettePosted 7 months ago
Normally would be limited to wider spread cassettes, but Hope run road width free hubs, so you can use any Shimano cassettes – wide spread (34T+) would need the spacer behind the cassette, tighter options run without spacer.
No problem with brake alignment.
One;y issue might be with lighter rims if you’re planning on being able to run smaller volume road tyres at higher pressures at all.Posted 7 months ago
SRAM gravel group sets use MTB cassette and spacing so you should be ok.Posted 7 months ago
SRAM 1x road used XD-r road spaced cassette but can use normal XD cassette with a spacer.
In you have Hope hubs, you’re laughing.Posted 7 months ago
*hope hubs pro2 evo 40t or newer, isn’t it? Pretty sure my old evos won’t take a normal roadie 11s cassette.Posted 7 months ago
I run Sram Rival 1x with Chris King mtb hubbed wheels and an XTR 11spd cassette with no issues at all.
Plays fine with flat mount calipers as well.Posted 7 months ago
