    New wheel set for 2012 overdrive

    I am in the market for some new wheels for my overdrive. However I have no idea what wheels are good and no idea what dimensions I need to replace these wheels other than that they are 29" and 9mm qr.

    What are some good wheel sets that are relatively cheap and durable?

    What wheels have you put on your overdrive?

    The Shimano MT-55 is a good budget wheel set. I had these on my old Diamondback. Had them for 2 seasons and only had to get the front trued once.
    Your size, if still using stock fork is:
    Front 100X9mm
    Rear 135X9/10mm
    Hope this helps.

    looks like on chain reaction cycles, they are 14mm through? cant find any that are 9mm qr.

    Also forgot to mention that i converted to a 10spd cassette as well.

    You upgraded your cassette to 10spd on the stock wheel/hub?

    Good information - I was wondering if that was possible on the stock hub. I am looking to upgrade from 7 to a 9spd setup.
