    Rim and Hub Questions

    These are some specs for the

    https://www.performancebike.com/bike...551_1183999_-1

    Deore 29" M525 Disc / Rhyno Lite Mountain Wheel - Rear:

    Rim Width:*27.5mm
    Skewers Included:*3-cross
    Spacing:*10mmx135mm QR rear

    Does the 10x135 spacing mean that its O.L.D is 135mm and axle length is 145mm?
    When it says rim width is that referring to the outer or inside width?

    My current rim is the AT-650, came stock on my trek marlin. The specs I've found for the rear wheel are:
    Hub = formula DC-22
    O.L.D = 135mm
    Axle Width = 145mm
    Inner rim width = 20mm
    Outer rim width = ~25mm
    Quick release
    6 bolt disc break
    8 speed

    I'd be putting a 2.1 in tire on it.

    I'm also interested in the Mavic TN719, but am concerned about the thin inner rim width, only 19mm.

    Would either of those fit on my current bike without having to do any modifications other than just transferring my cassette and disc? Also would those be an upgrade from my current wheel? Thanks for any help.

    I'm looking for something more durable because my current wheel comes out of true easily. I'm not too concerned about weight.

    If you're not hitting things hard and bending the rim, it's quite possible the wheel is going out of true because the spoke tension is too low. If that's the case, increasing and balancing tension can make the wheel hold true much better.
    Do the math.

    It's a mixture of the two probably. My rear wheel still works, but I don't think it will last much longer because the spokes I would need to tighten are already tight and the opposite side is already loose.
    I've had the bike a little over a year and have been progressively doing bigger jumps, so I'm happy with the length of time the rim held up and in need of a new one that's more durable.
