    Would I be able to use the same wheelset between a Tricross & Mukluk 2?

    I just got a 2013 Specialized Tricross comp disc, which is 100mm/135mm (front/rear). It uses 700c/29'er disc wheelsets. So would I be able to use the same 29'er wheelset from the Tricross onto the Mukluk 2?

    No.

    The tricross would use a 100/130mm combo

    and the mukluk uses a 135/170mm combo.

    Wait, you have both of these in your garage and you post this as a question???

    Yeah, sorry. Not too mechanically inclined when it comes to bikes. I know the Muk2 is wider, but I didn't know if it was ok to put smaller wheelsets in them.

    Ah just joshing!

    I just find wrenching to be very fun and enjoy experimenting with different parts.

    I'm surprised the aluminum tri-cross is 130. I don't know but I would've thought 135mm would offer more hub options. My steel cross-check is 132.5 spaced so you could run either. I don't know if AL allows +/- 5mm of tolerance.

    Oops, sorry. Typo. You are correct, it IS 135mm.

    You might be able to make this work. You'd need a 100mm spaced pugsly fork which is a little shorter than a mukluk fork, but will fit fine. I have been using one all summer. You'll also need a 135 wheel adapter in back--Salsa sells them, I think. The wheel will be off center but a few folks have used similar setups without reporting problems.

    I have put 2 different rear cx disc wheels on my moonlander. The chain was too long, the back wheel was off center due to the offset, and it stopped horribly.

    But it weighed less than 30 lbs, so yay.

    If I remember correctly, Pugs are offset, while the Muks are not.

    As Ziax01 says above Salsa makes an adapter for the Mukluk so you can use a 135 offset wheel in the 170 non-offset Muk. Probably not for frequent change overs back and forth. As he also states you could use your 135 cross wheel but it would be offcenter.
