I have a Giant Anthem 29r. I am looking for an extra set of wheels and tires to setup for pavement rides only. Here is the question I have. I found a set of brand new takeoffs from a Spot Honey Badger ss.
The hub width matches the hub width of my stock wheels.
Will I be able to put a cassette on there that matches my stock cassette? Will it mesh up nicely or will I have to readjust my rear deraillur every time I swap out the wheels?
Thank You in advance.

The Charger Comps should fit, the more likely adjustment will be the brakes. Since the clearance is so tight on pad clearance, just a slight deviation from on wheel to another can require an adjustment.

Yea, I have several bikes and wheels and swap them around. Had to buy some Wheelsmith shims to put all the brake rotors at the same distance out from center. I didn't know if his wheelset was disc or rim.

Hold on.

A Spot Honey Badger SS?

As in...single speed?

If that's the case, it's probably a single speed hub. Verify with seller. If it is, it won't work with your current drivetrain, unless you only plan on using between 1 and 6 gears.

Specs say Sun Ringle Charger Comps...many single speed bikes come with standard multi-speed rear hubs to allow for conversion if wanted.
