New wheelset

Snita's picture

By Snita - Posted on 09 December 2015

Excuse my lack of knowledge on something I'm pretty sure i should know, but I need a new wheelset for my bike (

What do I need?

15mm front & 135mm x QR rear
15mm front & 142 x 12mm rear

Looking at these wheels, thoughts?

I can't see anywhere that it says the axle type on the Trek link you posted.
I presume in that year it would be QR, it was the more common then.

If you could post a pic of your front and rear axles, we'll be able to tell straight away.

It's not so hard, but this really isn't the place for underware. However...


Anyhow, back to the wheels: You probably can't go wrong with a Shimano set. Certainly can't argue with that price!
