Just got hold of an alloy Planet X Uncle John cyclocross frame whihc has a 135mm OLD, unlike seemingly 99% of cyclocross oriented wheelsets which are 130mm.

Why couldn't they be sensible, and like Surly and Pake make it 132.5mm so it would take both?

Bearing in mind that I wish to use canti brakes and run it 9 speed, can anyone point me in the direction of a decent wheel choice? Could I just get a narrown 29er wheelset (so long as the rims have braking surfaces)?

Considering building some up with Deore XT non disc hubs... but which rims?

Any tips appreciated

:D
