    Possible to switch hubs on Spinergy wheels?

    Can I change the hub on Spinergy SLX wheels to a smaller hub and use the wheels on my everyday chair?

    I don't understand the need to try to swap hubs. Isn't it easier to get axles that fit instead?
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    SLX hubs are larger than Spins made for everyday chairs.

    It is cheaper to just buy new wheels. The hubs are pretty pricey and good chance you'll need different length spokes. Would have to compare the 2 to see about the spoke length?

    I agree with jschism, sell these and get what you need. Here is Spinergy's site, you would have to find which wheels match up and select everything, hubs and maybe spokes. It will run into real money. http://www.spinergy.com/store?f[0]=field_product%253Afield_tags%3A79
