ok, thats a point. Didn’t know that. I’ll check. The wheels are from a SPesh Sirus.
Either way, the plan is to build up an alfine rear wheel from scratch eventually. Maybe sooner if the current hub wont fit.
Been running track wheels 700c on a Surly Karate Monkey 29er frame.
The rear wheel is 120mm, so running chaintugs inboard with an extra spacer to space the axle out to 135mm.
Think the rims are 18-19mm wide by 30mm deep semi aero track rims on track hubs.
Have run 2.3 Bronsons and Hans Dampf tyres with no problems, but wider would be better.
When i get round to it, then a proper 29er disc ready wheelset will be coming.
Cheap option was to use the rim brake 700c track set i already had and pick up a set of v-brakes, worked allright for a few years now, but i fancy gears on the Monkey 🙂
