My LX rear wheel is about shot. I have an old XTR rear wheel-the hub is skinnier in the middle than newer hubs, making me think it has to be pretty old. Anyway, it's been used as a single speed wheel since I bought it. Is there a way to know if I could use it with my 9 speed cassette?
XTR 900 was 8 speed, which is the same width as 9 speed, which is the same as 10 speed......it'll work just fine. Sweet hub btw.
Yah, you betcha. The first series M900 XTR stuff was great. Slick, polished, beautifully anodized everything. Elegant, low-Q, 110/74mm bolt pattern cranks. Cantilever brakes, 8-speed shifters integrated with the brake levers. (I have a set of those I'm not using- I'll probably Ebay them this winter.)
