    Jet 9 build help

    I plan on ordering a Jet 9 AL frame in the next few weeks. I have a new Trek Superfly 8 and intend to take all the parts off the Superfly (and sell the frame) for the Jet 9. It looks like I'm good with the fork and most of the parts. Not sure about the maxle and the wheels that come with the Superfly, am I gonna have to switch out the rear hub? Any other glaring issues I missed. Here's the Superfly 8 specs:

    Trek Bicycle


    Any help would be appreciated.

    So just a regular rear hub?

    If you're buying the latest version of the Jet9 then you can use the same rear wheel that came with the Superfly. If you are getting the previous version, then you'll need to get a new rear wheel/hub that will work with a QR axel. Make sense?
