I have a set of felt road wheels on my road bike, they are the TTR4 model: https://www.theproscloset.com/products/felt-ttr4-aluminum-clincher-700c-wheelset

They are not 11 speed compatible, but I'm looking to see if I can make them 11 speed without buying a weird cassette. It doesn't look like Felt makes a freehub but i'd love to see if there is a substitute out there because nothing in the bike industry is truly unique.

Here's photos of the freehub: https://www.bikeforums.net/g/picture/19106929 It's steel, and kind of weird.

I'm looking for another brand that accomplishes the same thing...I see Ritchey and Fulcrum...do these appear the same?

I found this which has multiple freehubs with the same pattern. I think you are right (see, nothing new in MTB), but figuring out which one will be a challenge. We'll see if Felt will help.

aaaaaaaaaaand this may be the end of this experiment. It looks like I have the loose ball version rather than cartridge bearing. I don't want to deal with swapping axles, caps, etc. on a budget build low end wheelset. I'll pursue a 10s group or setup.
