I was just thinking, would 29er wheels fit on a road bike? Both are 700c if i am correct?
Sort of - If there is enough tire and brake clearance, yes. But beware the rear axle spacing. My cyclocross bike uses 135mm axle so it will work, but I think 10+ spd road uses 130mm.
Otherwise, sometimes on a steel frame you can flex the rear enough to make it work.
Thanks @arthur666. I am asking as I have ordered a cyclocross bike today and I am not entirely sure if the wheels will hold my weight (for the time being of course ) and in case of emergency I wanted to port over my MTB wheels instead.
I would hope any stock wheels would hold just about anyone. Especially on a cyclocross. You're not small, but you're not Andre the Giant.
But yes, it can be handy to have a backup set of wheels. I have the stock wheels from my All-City, and I can throw them on my mountain bike if I swap the disc rotors and cassette. Then adjust the brake calipers to line-up better. Turns the Krampus into some sort of weird hybrid with stupid-wide handlebars.
What did you get?
Are you sure? 198cm / 126 kg here
I am trying to keep it a secret until the package arrives so I can post a picture but I don't think it's hard to guess
Congrats Bram! Nothing like the thrill of getting a new bike. Can't wait to see her.
@Bram have you ordered that Canyon ?
I have and it's here already
