The EA90 XC wheelset was designed from the ground up for competitive trail riding and cross country racing. The aluminum rims are welded for an airtight UST seal right out of the box (no fussing with rim strips or sealant). And because the internal rim width is a generous 19-millimeters, these wheels easily accommodate tires as wide as 2.35”. The rims are laced with 24Sapim double-butted spokes to an anodized M1 hub and sealed cartridge bearings keep the EA90 XC spinning trouble free.

I'm guessing the answer is going to be no, but thought I'd check.
I have an old Orange 02 frame currently with Rear 9 speed cassette and Hub.
Eventually I would like to upgrade the whole gearing to XX1, but can't afford to do it all in one go.
Can I buy this Rear wheel with the SRAM XD Hub, but remove the XD Hub for now and put my 9 speed Hub+Casset on, then put the XD Hub back on when I can afford all the other XX1 components.
Also :( my 02 Rear Frame Axle size 10 x 135. I notice the SRAM XD Freehub options says 12 x 135/142. Is there any conversion kit to make it 10 x 135 (I know probably stupid question, but don't ask, don't know).
