    clownshoe on necromancer

    I was wondering if a clownshoe with a nate will fit on the rear of my

    necromancer.

    wth? really? then why does the moonlander need a different design with more clearance?

    Does the rim have to be laced differently for mounting on the puglsey rear?

    That^^^^^

    The Necro has the MWOD 2 ring crankset so that you can run Clownshoes with the smaller 3.8 tires OR BFLs on RDs(I have this combo running on mine right now). But Bud & Lou's are no go, even on RDs. Fat chance on CS!
    There is a reason for the Moonie, but the Necro was intentionally spec'd to be a middle ground between reg pugs and Moonie.
    Dunno about the offset question though. I know nothing about building wheels. Hopefully, another member can answer the needed offset ?

    The actual lacing of the rim is the same, which would be using the 32 spoke holes on the drive side of the rim, however the dish of the wheel to compensate for the offset of the frame will be different. Because of this a moonlander rear wheel will not just bolt to a necro. The moonie offset is 28mm and the pugs is 17.5mm (I believe). Depending on the wheel it may be just an issue of detensioning the wheel and retensioning to the different dish, but most likely it would require a change in spoke lengths to allow the rim to move over far enough and still be tensioned properly.

    If that all doesn't make sense let me know and I can try to clarify more. I'm not the best at explaining this stuff but it makes perfect sense in my head.

    On a Necro the front wheel will be a symmetrical build and the rear will be a 17.5mm offset build.
    Safe riding,
