Building up a friends N9 and want to know if anyone has successfully fit a B+ wheel in the rear.

This frame has the thicker stays and 135mm rear spacing. I have run B+ on other N9’s with 142/148 spacing and the thinner stays, but looking for real world info on this model.

We fit a 2.8 Rekon/Arc 35 last night but it had a 142mm hub so it was hard to get the exact spacing without being able to secure wheel. Our best estimate was 5-6mm clearance on either side. Also the stays were pulled ever so slightly apart which may have affected the space. More importantly, we don’t have a wheel to ride on to be sure there is ample clearance.

Need some help to prove/disprove this concept as finding someone with a B+/135 rear wheel is proving tough.



Pics of spacing are hard to judge, but figured I post anyway as everyone likes pics...
