    Motobecane Sturgis Ti/ bikesdirect compatible 29+ wheelset

    I was thinking of selling my Spec AWOL and reducing the quiver to just my Sturgis. Has anyone purchased the bikes direct 29+ wheelset for the Ti Sturgis? I am assuming one would need to purchase a cassette, and front and rear rotors. Do the Thru axles work from our original wheels? Let me know how this transition worked for you and what you purchased to make it work. tanks

    I have been eyeing them also. The one thing people will say is that a 25mm internal rim width is too narrow for a 3" tire. That being said, I have not heard of a review from anyone who has actually ridden on them, only those who want to comment.

    I would probably downsize the tire width anyway.... more interested in the wheels themselves.
