That is correct.

Sorry to bother you guys again about the disc and 11-speed compatibility, it must be driving you nuts. I know you're very busy making the discs 11-speed ready, I was wondering if it's a matter of a new body on the current hub, or an entirely new hub design. If you're "just" designing a new body, the older discs (or the discs in order 10 for that matter) could be converted to 11-speed later on I guess?

One last thing: could you give an indication of the shipping costs to The Netherlands?

It's more complicated than just putting a new hub body on the wheel. The new 11 speed spacing has forced us to redesign some of the actual hub. We are hopeful that existing FLO DISCs will be able to be upgraded when we are finished.

Shipping to the Netherlands is typically in the $70-$90 USD range.

I hope that helps,

Thanks Chris, very helpful. Will try and obtain one of those magic discs this evening (local time). Fingers crossed!

adrian,

Only FLO DISCs purchased after March 1, 2014 are compatible with 11 speed free hub upgrades. If you purchased your FLO DISC after that date you can upgrade.
