HELP - DT Swiss QR front hub to 15mm axle

Postby shropshirelad1 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 13:00 pm

Hi All,
Need some advice on converting my QR DT swiss front hub to 15mm through axle.
I've seen a number of conversion kits but the trouble is i don't know what model my hub is as there is no marking, just the DT swiss logo. There is a number on the side of the hub which reads L85370 460N.
Can anyone identify it and recommend a conversion kit? I think its an old unit so not sure if its supported.
Any help is appreciated!!!
Thanks

That doesn't look like one that can be converted, it looks like an old narrow body to me.

No model info on the hub which has left me scratching my head,
I reckon I'm going to have to buy a new hub. Trouble is my rims are mavic 317, 28 holes and most hubs with 15mm axle are 32 holes so it could get expensive

Usually cheaper for a new wheel anyway.
