    New question here. Wheel Recommendation - 29" 100QR / 135QR 6 Bolt - 11Speed. ?!

    Building up my new Surly Straggler and need a wheelset that can take my 11 speed setup but use 100 qr hub front and 135 qr hub rear.

    Under 400 price point would be lovely

    Any help or suggestions much appreciated. Thanks

    I just got a Spank Oozy 295 Trail wheelset from Chain Reaction. I paid $359USD and I am well pleased so far, although I am only one ride in thus far.

    They satisfied my need for a wider set of rims that could serve XC well and still be light. The free hub has a pleasantly precise sound without being obnoxious and the 30 POE is about twice as nice as 16.

    I was also pleasantly surprised that they came nicely taped for tubeless and with valves too. 9QRx135 adapters were included for the rear wheel; I had to buy 9QRx100 adapters for the front from Jenson, extra $20.

    They are Straight-pull, they seem to be very strong and help me put the power down. But what really got me was how much handling and traction improved with just an extra 3mm of rim width. Running 2.35fr and 2.2 rear

    Spank also sells an XD driver freehub if that is what you need, but will raise the price again...
