After trying SRAM on my new bike, I’m thinking of going back to a Shimano drivetrain.
I currently have a SRAM 11sp setup on a boost148 hub. Would a shimano cassette fit or do I need a new freehub as well? Would a 12 speed cassette require re-dishing of the wheel?
I would obviously get shimano derailleur/shifter etc.
You’ll need a new freehub body as well. Not sure if 12 speed would require re-dishing.
Does your SRAM cassette currently use a SRAM XD freehub body? Some SRAM cassettes use Shimano freehub bodies, in which case you can go to Shimano 11s no problem. 12s Shimano will need a different freehub.
You won’t need to re-dish the wheel. Even if you need to change from an XD SRAM freehub to a Shimano 11s HG or 12s HG+ (Microspline) Freehub. Assuming your hub manufacturer makes compatible freehubs bodies to change to, not everyone makes Microspline freehub bodies yet.
Good stuff, thanks guys! I realized the microspline issue just after I posted this. I’ll pull the cassette when I get a chance to see if I’m dealing with a more traditional shimano, but suspect it’s probably SRAM
