  1. Wheels and Tires
    I recently bought a marzocchi bomber dj for a dirt jumper. The spacing is 20x110. What kind of hubs/wheels can work with this? Can I run a 15x100 wheel or do I need to get different hub caps? Thanks
  2. Wheels and Tires
    Might anyone be able to recommend a rear wheel? One of my [favorite] bikes is a 2020 Salsa vaya. Sort of an odd ball since it takes a 135QR rear and a through axle front due to the updated waxwing carbon fork they added. Love the bike but hate wheel shopping for it. Fortunately I’ve got a nice...

So I measured the hubs the old school method I got 271.6 for the right and 270.7 for the left on the rear wheel . and I got 271 for...

    hi, I have a 23mm rim on the front and a 25mm rim on the back. What would be the best combination of tire sizes ? I ride mostly rocky, hard terrain with lots of climbs. Thanks in advance!

    I noticed a dent in the sidewall of my rim. There appears to be a slight crack, but it is hard to tell if it is a crack or the paint chipping away in the dented area. This is the first time this has happened to me. I am running tubes so there hasn't been an issue holding air. I went on a 10 mile...

    The Roam 60 is SRAM's top tier carbon wheelset. When they debuted in 2013, it was at the cusp of the wider-is-better revolution. Since then, however, wheels and tires have only gotten bigger. The latest from SRAM sports a 30mm wide internal diameter. They've also stepped away from the UST...

    I have a Gravity Basecamp Mountain Bike and I needed to true the wheels and I made it worse, I think, not knowing what I was doing! Should I loosen all the spokes to where I can start to see the begining of the thread, and just start over by giving each nipple an equal turn till they are tight...

    I'm looking to get a new SS rear wheel (disc) for my Monocog - right now I've got a 9-speed hub with spacers, and it's just not working out. I'd like to spend less than $300 on the wheel, but I'd like to be smart about it (I don't need to spend the max if it's not worth it). Here's what my...
