    Cannondale Prophet 27.5 conversion

    Hi all. I'm in the process of converting my Prophet to 27.5. I am currently running a 27.5 fox factory 34 at 150mm. I'm planning on running a maxxis DHF/Aggressor combo. I'm having serious problems finding a 27.5 wheelset with decent convertible 135mm rear hub spacing. Ideally these would have caps for 12mm thru axle rear. The standard Prophet has a qr rear dropout but I'm going to run a 12mm to qr adapter. Why? Because I'm hoping to find the rare MX variant at some point that does take a 12mm thru.

    I've found some cheap sets like an older version of the Sun Ringle Black Flag Expert but the rims are narrow and the hubs sound like shit. Tire clearance is very tight with this conversion. I think 2.3 is about as wide as I can go in the back. No issues with the non boost fork for what I want. I'm planning on a 2.4 or 2.5 there.

    Any recommendations for a good wheelset? Under $500 if possible. Thanks all.

    I believe several Stan's wheelsets have variations for 142mm x 12mm to 135mm x 10mm QR.
