    Old 03 GF Paragon New SuperFly Wheels

    I am new to MTB and I have bought a 2003 Gary Fisher Paragon That needs a set of wheels. I found a deal for some New Trek SuperFly Bontrager Mustang wheels on CL. I know my bike has a 9 speed cassette and the SF is a 10 Speed and will need to change that over but my question is the hubs are the frames wider on the new SF than that of my Paragon. This might be a stupid question I don't know but any help would be appreciated. Ans These are a ways away and would hate to drive all the way there and they dont work.

    It totally depends on what year and model SF the wheels came off of. The rear wheel should be no problem. If the Fly is a full suspension model you'll need a new skewer to fit your frame, but the hub will be fine. The FS Super Flies use the ABP rear drop outs that use a standard hub, but longer than normal QR skewer. Probably not an issue though as if it is an FS bike the owner likely would keep the ABP skewer. They aren't that common and they are rather expensive to replace. So he or she would likely keep it.

    As for the front, again that depends heavily on the year and model of the bike the wheels came off of. If it's a 2013 set, then, unless you have a 15mm QR Through Axle fork, the front likely won't be compatible with your fork. Both of the 13 model hardtails that spec the mustangs come with a 15mm TA fork and front wheel. The same is true for the two mustang speced full suspension models. So if it's a 2013 set, the front wheel likely won't work with your fork.

    If the wheels come off of a 2012 model then you should be fine. In 2012 all the Super Fly models that came with the Mustang wheels used a standard quick release set up.

    Bottom line is, you need to contact the seller and find out exactly what the hubs are set up for. If you still aren't sure then com back with pictures, or a link to the CL add so we can see what they're selling. For the most part though if the wheels are off of a 2012 Super Fly they should be fine. If they're off of a 2013 Fly, then the front likely won't work unless you have a 15mm Though Axle fork.

    Thank you very much for the fast reply I feel bad asking questions that are probably common sense to most on here. But like they always say the only ignorant question is the one not asked. I will see if I can find out more about these Thanks again

    They came off a 2012 Here is the info I found about them from Trek Web-sight. Bontrager 28-hole FCC alloy front hub, Shimano M525 SL 32-hole alloy rear hub; Bontrager Mustang Disc 29 rims, Tubeless Ready.
