So, my NOS XT M732 rear hub arrived today from Switzerland - and I realized that in my haste to bid, I failed to notice that it was a 130mm OLD hub, as opposed to a 135mm... :oops: d'oh...

So, how much grief is it going to be to swap the axles over with my battered 135mm XT hub that I'm using at the mo?

if my memory serves me right, its easy.
I think if you just undo the cone/locknut on non-drive side, the whole axle slides out (watch your balls :shock: )

None at all. Cone spanners, out, coffee ( it's nice to put new bearings in at this point ), in, grease, cone spanners. Job's a good 'un.
