    Can I throw my cassette onto these wheels?

    I currently have mismatched wheels on my Peugeot Triathlon. The previous owner told me that the rear Rigida wheel (the hub says Shimano 105 on it) is original, but the front Mavic wheel is not. I don't care too much, but it bugs me that the rear sits higher than the front.

    I found these 32 Hole Mavic 700c Real Ultralite Shimano Wheels on Craigslist:

    Almost new 700c 32 hole wheels handbuilt with Shimano grey Open Pro rims and Real Ultralite hubs. Hubs are Shimano 10 speed compatible (not 9 spd) and have titanium skwewers.

    Unfortunately, I don't know about mounting wheels in the slightest bit. The bike has a full Shimano RX100 group and there are 6 speeds/levels on the cassette.

    I'm thinking that they probably won't work, but I figured I'd check first.

    Thanks,

    - Joe

    As long as the cassette you want to mount on those wheels is Shimano (or SRAM) and the size is the same, as what was there before, I can't really see any problems other than axle spacing, which if it is off, any competent framebuilder or some shops should be able to do for you just fine. I think proper spacing for that kind of axle/hub is 135mm, but I'm not 100% positive. And just so long as you're using friction shifters that will move the derailleur all the way, and the rear derailleur you want to use will travel up and down all the sprockets... I say go for it.
    But, that's about all I can tell you really.
    I know the other members on the forum might be able to add, but, that's what I know on the subject.

    Amani tells you right: you have a 6-speed shimano 105 rear hub (is it even a cassette, or is it a freewheel?) and the spacing for that should be 126mm. This wheelset has a shimano-compatible rear hub, but it's for a 10-speed cassette, so the spacing should be 130mm (135mm would be a Mtn. bike, AFAIK)...so the rear won't fit in your frame unless the rear is spread to accommodate the 130mm spacing, and I doubt that whatever you have that's 6-speeds is gonna work on that hub, so you'd need a new cassette. But you can run fewer gears on the "10-speed" hub, if you wanted to or if your *friction* rear derailleur won't shift the spread: check out Sheldon's articles for all the skinny

    Simple answer is no

    And the longer answer is don't even mess with these wheeld as the owner says they are 10s only, not 9s compatible (meaning it has tall splines), which even Shimano has gone away from after about couple of years experiment.
