FLO DISC and 11-speed

Postby michael_runs » December 20th, 2013, 8:19 am

I see from the online store that the 11-speed hub body is not compatible with the FLO DISC. I was considering upgrading to a bike with an 11-speed drivetrain. Is there any way to make my FLO DISC (purchased July 2013) work with a bike with 11-speed drivetrain (Ultegra or Dura Ace)?

michael_runs,

We are still working on making the FLO DISC 11spd compatible. The new spacing of the freehub body has forced us to change our design. We are working on testing now and hope to have an solution in a couple of months. We are hoping that existing discs can be converted but we are not 100% sure at this point.

I hope that helps,

michael_runs,

At this point in time I simply do not have an answer. We are definitely working on it though.

Take care,

If you need any testers, I would be more than happy to help, i'm on the way from Vegas to the LSWT in SD. I have an 11sp 2014 Felt AR. Already using Flo 30 and Flo 90 sets. Also a 2009 Cervelo R3SL 11sp but I don't think that's really a concern for disc compatibility.

Maybe if there is time and budget available a trip to ERO Sports to use the Alphamantis system would be in the cards.

Boki,

Right now there are no updates. I assure you we are working on it. We will certainly let people know when we have an update.

Take care,

So to be clear, the 20 discs in pre-order 10 are 10-speed discs, and not updated 11-sp discs correct?
