The word "troll" should be included in the brief vocabulary.

Hubs and Rotors

There are the two main bits you have to look at:

Hub width, which with MTB's is either 135mm or 150mm wide which are the most common. This is down to how wide apart your rear dropouts are.

Axle size, which is the size of the axle that runs through your hub. Again with MTB's, it can be either;
QR OR
9mm
10mm
12mm

These can either then be bolt on axles or screw in axles such as Maxles.

These vary on different frames.

With cassettes, it depends whether you have a freehub or not. Most half decent wheels do so.

Disc brakes have two main fitting types:

Standard 6 bolts on the hub
Shimano Centerlock.

Have a look at this: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/ for some better info.

Hello ,

I need a 9mm QR axel for my bike. Can i buy a wheel with any size axel and then put my existing one in it?

Will this work?

Thanks

No. You can get adapters for some 15mm/20mm hubs to run QR. Axles are very hub specific. You can use pretty much any QR skewer in any QR hub.

On the end of a cable, what do you call the little do-dad that you tighten down to adjust length... it also serves as the point where the cable pulls the mechanism? (this is from a dropper post cable)


The shape varies with different applications... I need to find one of these and trying to figure out the term to search.

What's a ''tranny''? Could be defined as ''landing''?
