Does anyone know if a 9 speed cluster (XTR) will go onto a 8speed freewheel (crossmax and Hope suspension hubs)?

I'm trying to work out if I can do the transition without needing to buy new wheels as well...

Tar,

Generally you need to grease 8 and 9 speed freehub bodies before trying to insert them into your nether regions.

But interestingly enough they are identical in size and shape so you can't "Go the extra distance" by using 9 speed.

I hope that answers your question.

Thank you mr gimp - it shure did halp.

Of course, although the extra distance wasn't covered, there was the 34 tooth big sprocket, allowing for that extra wide action. :crazy:
