    Yeah I plan to go with a 20mm axle. I'm finding it rather difficult to find a wheelset with a 10mm rear axle though.

    Any wheelset with a standard qr will work. That's a normal size dropout. Jenson has a few 20mm wheelsets pretty cheap.

    Oh ok, so the standard size for the rear QR wheels is 10mm? Is the standard size for the front QR wheels 9mm?

    Yup although usually slightly under or over. You can also get rear hubs with 10mm thru or bolt on axles.

    Oh ok, that makes sense. So these should work just fine with my frame?

    Have another question, my headtube is about 4.5" high, would a fork that has a steerer of 8.75" high work okay?

    Yes. You'll probably have to cut about an inch or more off depending on how you like your stack height.

    Thanks for the help yet again, Remy! Hopefully I'll be the proud owner of a fork soon.

    I don't mean to bring back an old thread but I finally got my hands on a fork. I just want to confirm that this is the correct headset before ordering. Is this the headset that I need?

    That's the one. Or any other ZS if you'd like some other brand than FSA.

    Don't mean to bring an old thread back from the dead but I figured I would post up a few pictures of my W-six now that it's been completed. Finished it up earlier this year and this thing is a blast to ride! I just finished adding the last few bits last month, mainly cosmetics to but its 100% complete now. Here are some pictures from earlier this year:





    Thank you very much for all of the help Remy Darke, I couldn't have done it without you.
