    Can't find the right wheels

    I want to switch out my bike's 29er wheels for 27.5", but I can't find any wheels with the right the right hub spacing. The wheels are QR, 10 x 100mm (front) and 10 x 141mm (rear). Can anyone help me out?

    Iím guessing your front is NINE by 100.

    And the rear is either 10x135, 12x141 or 12x142.

    I got those numbers from the specs on the company website. I thought they might be wrong, since I couldn't find those sizes anywhere. How can I figure out the correct measurements?

    Okay, so I think they're 9 x 100 and 10 x 135. Can anyone point me to some tubeless compatible tires with these hub savings that fit an 11 speed cassette? Preferably not too expensive? I'm having trouble finding them.

    I think CRC still has some fully built wheels for QR on sale.

    Hope Pro 4 hubs have end caps for 9x100 and 10x135. You can buy DT Swiss RWS pins in 9 and 10mm sizes to accompany the end caps. I ran this setup on my bike all summer. I think there are a couple other manufacturers that have end caps to do this conversion, but I'm only familiar with Hope.

    You can buy a set of Hope Pro 4 Enduro wheels from Chain Reaction Cycles. Select the 15x100 and 12x142 option. Hope includes end caps for 5mm QR when you buy hubs using those sizes. The rims are tubeless compatible but you need to tape them yourself. They are also 11spd compatible as long as you use the supplied spacer ring.

    I think CRC also sells the 9mm and 100mm Hope end caps as well. If not, you can get them from Jenson USA along with the DT Swiss RWS pins. From there, you can take out the hub end caps and install the 9 and 10mm end caps along with the pins.

    I bought my end caps and pins from Jenson.

    You are not alone. I assume you want to put some plus 27.5 tires on the wheelset. From what I've seen there are no wheelsets out there for 7-10 speeds with more than 26mm rims, unless you buy the whole bike. In other words more or less all wider rims are 11-12 speed. The best thing to do, if you want an alternative to what Battery suggested (or compare prices on his method vs. this one) is have a local bike shop build the wheelset:

    WTB Asym i35 TCS Rim (32 Hole), 27.5" $75 x 2 = $150
    i40 is between $107 and $125 each; i45 are $117 each

    9x100mm front hub and 10x135mm rear hub (you can get these for as cheap as $12 for loose bearings; the sealed ones I've seen are closer to $45 each) = maybe $90 ---
    OEM Black KOOZER XM490 Bicycle Hub 32H Front&Rear MTB/Road 9x100MM 10x135MM $92. Made in Taiwan, not mainland China BTW. I'm going to buy the front one of these for $45 and do 1/2 plus. Well I'm already doing that but nevermind.

    27.5" spokes are around $10 x 2 = $20

    LBS labor should be around $50 x 2 = $100

    Total cost = around $360 for the i35 wheelset, not bad at all; maybe $25-50 more for i40 or i45



    Battery's suggestion:

    Hope Tech Enduro - Pro 4 MTB Rear Wheel $337

    Hope Tech Enduro - Pro 4 MTB Front Wheel $225

    Total cost = $562. For some reason the webpages don't say what width the rim is...



    Third option for those on a budget is buy an i25 wheelset for $180:
    Wheel Masters Whl Pr 27.5 584X25 Wtb Sx25 Bk 32 Shi M525 8-10Scas 6B Qr Bk 135Mm Dti2.0Bk

    Just as a warning, putting a plus tire on a 25mm rim is a bit dicey for handling at speeds over 10 mph. Fine for slower straight-line stuff, not so great for faster sweeping turn stuff.

    23mm; OP didn't state he was looking for a specific width.

    OP, another option is working with Wayne and have him build you a set of wheels. He is an awesome guy. He is in the process of building me a set of wheels with Stan's Flow rims (29mm ID) and Bitex hubs.

    He can make you a custom set based on what you are looking for. He responds pretty quick to emails too. His build times are 10-14 days and will warranty his work. He will also tape your rims for tubeless and give you valve stems!

    Yeah I love Wayne. He is awesome. I can't count how many times we talk about something else in our email exchanges that isn't related to wheels!

    What bike do you have? 10x141 is a real hub size (the QR version of 12x148 Boost) but it is so new and not a standard for high-end bikes so aftermarket hub options are very, very sparse.
