I have blagged some Mavic 700c-32 wheels.

Will they fit on one of my numerous MTBs with 26" wheels or is it a major faff cos of the brakes etc ??????

Re:

Try Paul component V brakes as they have good vertical brake block adjustability for the wider rim.

You will also have the problem of the 130mm OLN on the wheels and a 135mm reartriangle on the bike...OK with a steel frame, not advisable in aluminium and a definite NO in carbon fibre.

Thanks guys I'm thinking it's too much of a faff to fit modern Mavic road wheels to 20 + year old MTBs (I now ALL RETRO !). Might have to flog em.
