In a bind for 24" wheelset for Airnimal
Okay, the bind I'm in runs as follows:
I have an Airnimal Chameleon that I'm about to bring to Europe with me. The doofus I bought it from alleges the 24" wheelset was sent just after the frame (which HAS arrived) but that was 3 weeks ago.
So I'm without a wheelset. Assuming it doesn't arrive on time, I have several options, including buying a new 24" wheelset. (Wife understandably vetoed that, as I've got far too many bikes and bike projects.)
I can also pillage a kid's Norco bike to get the 24" wheelset.
But will it fit? (I can't measure it myself; it's in another city.)
The Airnimal has a rear dropout of 130mm, with a front fork dropout of 100mm. Norco "24 wheelsets are mountain wheelset, I think.
What are mountain wheelsets? 135mm in the back and ??!?!? in the front?
Anyone able to pitch in with an opinion?
