    New question here. Help with Epic Marathon 29er wheel set

    Recently purchased a Epic Marathon(29er XL) frame and fork. I am looking for a wheel set but I am not sure of the axel configuration. I have been to the Specialized web site and if the answer is there I cannot find it. It does mention the front uses 28 mm end caps. PLEASE HELP !:

    a 2010 epic marathon, right?

    that front hub had 28mm endcaps (larger contact area in the fork legs to help stiffen things up, but the hub axle was 9mm and the fork has regular 9mm open dropouts.

    so, you can get regular 9mm front and 10mm rear wheelset...a "regular" run of the mill wheelset will work fine....and, none of that 142 stuff, just plain old 135mm rear hub width.

    hope this helps.

    Find a set of these , new or used and you'll be set.
    If I had a black light this place would look like a Jackson Pollock painting.
