2.8" tires require 30mm inner width or more, even 30mm is pushing it. Best is 35mm. If you run a 2.8" with a 28mm rim then the tire will not sit correctely and if you go into a turn the tire will potentially fold off the rim.Guys, so I'm looking at a set of Stans 142TA wheels and would get the Stans QR endcaps. So now I need an adapter kit to convert from 142 to 148? Like this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N...236_SY340_QL65&keywords=Velofuze+rear+adapter
I know this seems complicated but the Stans wheelset is super cheap ($200). It's a 28mm outer width rim, so will they be too narrow to run a 2.8" Rekon tire? The bike came with 35mm rims.
I am in the same predicament, wanting to buy some aftermarket carbon wheels but have the dreaded Norco Fluid with 141 QR Boost.The 141 QR hub is a Boost spacing.
Here is the best way to explain it:
142mm x 12mm thru axle spacing in QR version is a 135mm QR. 148mm x 12mm Boost spacing in QR version is 141mm QR Boost. This way we get the benefits of boost in a QR version. Notice that there is a total of 7mm difference between a 142/135 and a 148/141, that is because in order to make it thru axle 3.5mm TA spacers are added to QR hubs to make them TA hubs. With Boost the thru axle came first so to bring out a 141mm QR after is a bit confusing.
- Tire clearance
- Shorter chainstays
- Better chain line
If you wanted to upgrade your hub to a hub with interchangeable end caps you will need to use a 148 x 12 TA hub and switch the end caps out to the QR option. Example is a DT Swiss 350 148x12. Pop the TA end caps off and put on the QR caps then you have a 141mm QR higher end hub.
Hope that helps.
Should be fine. The 141 QR should not be dreaded. It will be the new standard for all QR MTB within the next two years.142x12 and 135 QR will be gone.I am in the same predicament, wanting to buy some aftermarket carbon wheels but have the dreaded Norco Fluid with 141 QR Boost.
I just want to confirm to be 100% sure, if I buy wheels with rear DT SWISS 350 12x148mm BOOST hub, and then I can convert to to fit 141mm QR with this?

Thanks in advance
No. You have a 142x12 hub.Hi there!
I'm in the same situation... my Skott Spark 760 has (I think) Fotmula hub CT1702. 141*5 QR I want to replace cassette to SRAM XG and looked for XD Driver for it.. nothing.. I saw some guys recommended replace the Hub + ends for QR , spacers, etc. It's no good for my wallet but whatever.....I'm not a mechanic. If anywhere can help me, I'll be appropriate, tell me what I need for replace hub 141x5 freehub driver for better quality with XD driver.
Thanks a lot
You mean my hub 142x12 just QR? Scott tech support tell me 141x5. I'm confused...No. You have a 142x12 hub.
You need a Formula XD freehub, 142x12.
