My LBS mentioned a company that makes a conversion kit for Ultegra hubs - Morningstar or something - it replaces a regular 9 speed cassette on the hub. Anyone know about this?

I thought the morning star conversion was an aluminum adapter that had a grease port. It allows you to grease a Shimano freehub body without taking it apart. I've never seen one but I remember reading about it a couple of years ago.

Morningstar doesn't ring a bell. Surly makes a cassette converter for Shimano hubs. Is this what you had in mind?
