Question about wheels.

535 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Odin Bane
Just a quick question. I'm looking for a new wheelset for my Jamis '09 Dakota Sport. I need to know what the difference is between a centerlock type wheel and a 6 bolt type. I don't know what type mine is, i tried looking in my manual and couldn't find anything. If anybody can tell me which one i need for mine that would be great :confused: .
Suggestions on a set too would be appreciated. Something that'll hold up to a little bit of abuse once in a while and won't break the bank.


Thanks- Odin

The difference is the way the brake rotor is connected to the hub. If you see six bolt heads, you have 6-bolt hubs.
According to Jamis, you have centerlock currently...though you could buy 6 bolt rotors if needed.

These are a good deal with the excellent Shimano SLX centerlock hubs and good WTB Laser Disc XC rims, all handbuilt with DT spokes.
