    29" wheelset wanted

    Why can't I find a 135 front / 170 rear, 10 speed, 29er wheelset for my Boris? I see them referenced here or there but can't seem to find one for sale anywhere.

    The combination of hub width/driver/rim is not a mainstream spec. for F and R anymore as a complete package. Totally doable but your best bet is finding a place that will custom build a set for you.

    yep, too specific to be offered as a complete. just get some built.

    When I built out my fatbike, there were very few options for complete fatbike wheelsets on the market at all. Almost everything was a custom built wheel.

    I've built a few sets with Bike Hub Store hubs and Velocity Duallys. Just did a set on Hope Pro4's as well.
    Just get em built.

    99% sure I have a set like this built in the shop right now. Pretty sure they're Salsa hubs, not positive on the rims tho -- maybe WTB?

    Drop a line and remind me if you'd like -- I can pull 'em off the high shelf they're on and give you the deets: info@lacemine29.com
