    Xootr wheel on Dahon Boardwalk ??

    hi all,

    will this xootr swift 20" wheel fit the dahon boardwalk ? my boardwalk rear wheel needs to be replaced and i happened to saw this wheel set which i think has a better spec than the dahon wheel. anyone has experience or has tried this ? appreciate it.

    TIA,
    vic

    Do you want to put gears on the rear.

    Measure your frame dropout. It should work if it is 130mm as this wheel is 132.5mm and you can spread the dropout a little bit.

    I take it that you have ahorizontal dropouts? Have you thought of installing an internal geared hub?

    i actually was thinking about that but had second thought because of the cost so i decided to just keep the existing gears/cogs. if i do change the rear wheel set it will cost me less than $100 but if i go IGH it will be about $160 for the IGH and i need to have my LBS build me a new wheel set which i think will be about $30 for the rim + 40 for labor + 32 for the spokes and 20 more for incidental expenses like nipples. so total cost may round up to about $282. so a big difference compare to buying a rear wheelset.

    thanks,
    vic
