hey guys,

I'm really light, and i can get away with all mountain wheels, so is there any way that i can use a wheel with a 135mm axle length to fit my M6 which requires a 150mm rear axle.
The wheels i want to use are the crank brothers iodine all moungain wheels http://crankbrothers.com/wheel_tech_iodine.php
Another thing, if there are any other wheels that you can suggest?

thanks.

No, you cannot fit 135 spacing wheels in a 150 rear end. Assuming you made spacers that allowed it to fit, either the brake or the derailleur/cassette would not line up.

You can get 135mm dropouts for M6 (expensive), although your chainline maybe screwed up. Best option is get 150mm wheelset.
