Chances are, if you are going to buy a new bike/frame today, it will be Boost. Boost is here to stay thanks to the advantages in wheel strength and stiffness and how designers can adapt frame geometry. Boost hub spacing in the front has gone from 100x15mm to 110x15mm, and rear has gone from 142x12mm to 148x12mm. Manufacturers have done this to open up more options for tyre, and chain ring clearance as well as advantages when deciding on geometry. Boost hubs also build up a stiffer and stronger wheel due to being wider. This is all well and good, but you probably have a perfectly fine set of wheels or hubs in your current bike. Luckily there are a few options to convert your non-Boost hubs to Boost. In this example we are going to use a Problem Solvers and Wolf Tooth kit. The Problem Solvers kit is a simple washer and rotor spacer that will work with any hub.
The Wolf Tooth Boostinator kits are hub specific. They only make them for DT Swiss, Hope and White Industries hubs. They are a little neater and easier to use as they replace an end cap that is always attached to the hub. You will still need to go through the previous steps to dish and space out the rotor. There are a few options for front hubs as well. Some you won't have to dish the wheel, so you don’t. If you do need to re-dish the wheel, just follow the steps for this rear wheel article. Again, Problem Solvers and Wolf Tooth make kits for front hubs as well.
