Cassette compatability replacing rear wheel
Hi, I have a bent wheel on my Trek 800, (thanks to my son and the garage door
) I bought a new wheel, 26" mavic rim 36 hole that has a Suntour XC comp Freehub (can't return it bought at yardsale). I was not aware there was so much more to know about rear wheel replacement.
This wheel has a freehub with a threaded outer end. I need to now buy a cassette for this freehub. I bought a Bike repair book to help me with this confusion as well. I want to make sure what I buy will work with all the other components of the bike. I spent hours reading Sheldon Brown's page, the book was "general" reapir and maintenance, so I finally decided to post hoping some very nice person will guide me correctly. I really miss riding bikes with my boys, and I look forward to suggestions on exactly what I need to buy.
