    New wheel fit

    I just received a new set of fat carbon wheels from Light Bicycle with Onyx hubs and new rotors. I've installed both and noticed that the rear caliper needs adjustment due to rotor rubbing. The front wheel needed no adjustment. Is this to be expected with a different wheel set?

    This is the first time I've owned a second set of wheels.

    New wheel fit

    Yes, I usually have to readjust brake calipers when switching wheels. Seems normal to me

    If you're using 6 bolt hubs, you can use spacers from Syntace to space out the narrower hub, so you don't need to adjust your caliper when you swap wheels

    Totally normal, sometimes shifting changes a little also and you have to adjust shift cable tension or high/low limits.
