    bikesdirect Mulfut deal with Dillinger 4 tires

    I'm putting together a set of studded tires for my Fatillac. I have a set of 45 North Dillinger 4 (26" x 4" tires) studded tires and was thinking of this bikesdirect deal for the wheelset:

    FREE SHIP 48 STATES* FAT BIKE WHEELS PROMO SALE PAIR of FatBike SunRingle MuleFut Tubeless Compatible Thru-Axle Wheels + FREE Tires: Top Rated Maxxis Minion FBF / FBR Yes, sold and shipped in pairs. (Front+Rear Wheel)

    Any thoughts on this deal? Looks really good.

    Also, not sure this would fit on my bike which has a 12x177mm rear through axle. The ad references that the rear Thru-axle fits 197mm rear axle spacing but uses spacers to do that.

    Let me know what you all think.

    They will not fit your bike. 190/197 is too wide for your frame. The rear measurement must match.

    Ok, thanks. Wasn't sure because the ad also says: "Wheels come with 2 spacers (bottom of pic on right) to make rear hub fit 197mm dropouts".

    the wheels will fit either a 190 or 197 mm width rear.

    Both those are wider than your 177 mm rear.

    They won't fit.

    I cannot say I have tried to use a rear with those spacers. It seems it would screw with the position of the the brake rotor and cassette relative to the caliper and derailleur respectively when compared to a 197mm hub. Regardless, it will not work for a 177 frame.

    Check these out:

    MUCH better wheels.

    What BlueCheesehead suggests is quite a nice deal. If that is out of the hoped for price range then maybe take a look at the offerings from The Bikesmiths.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.
