Giant TCR Compact Road Sl Frame What Wheel Size Goes With This

I bought the 2009, I think, Compact Road SL Giant Frame. I need to buy wheels for it, but I bought a pair and they didn't fit the backside of my bike. Does anyone have one of these, or did anyone buy a frame to build of one of these. I know I'm asking a very specific question but I'm hoping someone will have an answer.

That bike should take standard 700c wheels. What about the back wheel did not fit? Was the hub too wide for the frame? Did the rim/spokes hit the frame at any point? You need to be more specific.

Did the wheel not fit or the tire not fit past the brake pads? The latter is a common problem for less experienced cyclists.

Having read the OP's question on the SS/FG forum,
http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ompact-Road-Sl
he's bought a wheel with a track hub and it's 120mm OLD, he needs 130mm OLD to fit his road-bike frame.

It will need a longer axle and 10mm of spacers added to the non-drive side and to have to wheel re-dished.

I've decided to sell the frame and buy an already built bike. Thanks though. The wheel didn't fit into the hooks.
