Road Wheels?

Has anyone tried to mount a road wheelset with disc brakes onto their ride? would that make it a 29er?

You can do it if you have the right rear hub spacing.

rear Road hubs are generally spaced 130, mtb spaced 135.

And it will raise your BB a bit, depending on your tire selection.

Other than that, if you have the clearance you can do it.
