    Ok novice bike component sourcing question.

    I have 1 steel frame with rear triangle spacing of 140mm.

    I just got some wheels 2013 mavic cross trails 135×9/12.

    Have i ballsed up here getting the 135 or should I have looked for a 140mm wheel.

    I guess it fits if i pull the rear triangle together… My main concern is whether a 10 speed xt cassette is going to fit on him.

    Any help which will stop me sweating will be appreciated.

    Cheers

    This is a bit odd then. I felt pretty sure getting a 135 hub, but then when i looked at the fit i started to sweat.

    I measured the rear dropout spacing and its bang on 140

    Define “measured”… 🙂

    Its 135mm.The mavics will run a 10spd cassette.

    Now stop sweating. 🙂

    Have you measured between the inside or outside of the dropouts?

    Everything will fit. You will be fine.
