    wheel compatibility

    I think these wheels will fit but want confirmation. My gravel bike has 700C wheels with quick releases front and rear. Rear spacing is 135 mm. Looking at a 650b wheelset that is 15x100 front and 12x142 rear. Is there a convert kit that will allow me to run them? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    It depends on the if the hub manufacturer made this hub model with convertible end caps and axles, what info do you have on the hubs?

    Thanks for the reply. I found out that I can run them on my bike. Also, is 650B and 27.5 the same? Are tubes and tires interchangeable?

    Yes, 650B is 27.5 and 700C is 29... tires should align with a rim width they were designed for optimal tread contact.

    Another question if I may. If I size up the inner wheel width by 4 mm does the tire contact patch width grow by the same amount? I assume it will get wider using the same tire on a wider wheel but would also by shorten the height of the tire.
