Have been upgrading my 2007 stumpjumper with a new set of wheels.Mavic XC 717 Rims and Shimano XT 765 Hubs.The wheels are great,but when I went to install the wheels the skewers were shorter in length then the original skewers.My original hubs were shimano 525 rear and Stout on the front.The Shimano web site shows 168mm and 173mm rear skewers are avaliable,and the front skewer is a standard 133mm or 5.25in.When I ordered the wheels there was no choice for skewer length and any other sites on the web seem to use the standard 168mm length.If I order the skewers online I can only find 168mm.Is this the norm for specialized.Even the STOUT skewer on the front is slightly longer than the standard 5.25in. or 133mm.So I thought I would ask other Specialized bikers to see if they had similiar problems.I am using the my old deore skewers at the moment.
Have emailed specialized to find out the lenghts used but they have not got back to me yet.
Thanks for any help
