Bid on a pair of 700c wheels for a retro hybrid build. They’re Mavic rims on TI glide hubs and were very reasonably priced and in lovely condition, little used.

Of course, in my haste to pick up a bargain I failed to notice they were tubular rims... :facepalm:

Plan A was to rebuild with clincher rims... thing is I then discovered the rear axle is 130mm, and the trek frame is 135mm...

No problem I thought, I have a couple of 130mm spaced early MTBs. Only thing is, the hubs are both 28 hole and I can’t find any 28 hole 26” rims...

So... what shall I do with them?

Yeah, I’ll probably hang on to them until the right rims come up... or frame.

Shame though, cos 700c 28h rims are easily found, and I was looking forward to (finally) making a good start on the trek. Can the rear hub be respaced? Frame is bonded aluminium so I think it’s going to want to stay as it is...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR

You could just swop the rear axle for a 135mm one and change the drive side spacer.

The ti glide bodies are the same size whether 130 or 135. Or even disc for that matter. Its all down to the axle length.

Actually, Im just in activsport ebay and a ti glide 135mm axle is available from them.

Wasnt even looking. I'll check what you need spacer wise, and should be some in the box.
You can keep the 130mm, ive 5 :lol:
