    CX wheels with disk compatibility :( ?



    Im having such a hard time finding 700c wheels that can take disk and fit 32c wheels,
    Been looking for 2 hours searching
    Evans, Wiggle, Wheelies, ChainReactions

    Is anyone running any wheels that may fit my description

    Also im looking for wheels that have nice decals like fulcrum CX wheels

    Any help would be great

    And does anyone know of some mudguards that are compatible with disk brakes? for my CX bike

    5 seconds of searching brought back results, you haven't mentioned budget, this is very important, as there aren't too many factory disc road / CX wheels out there yet, come back in a year-18 months when more road bikes have them as standard, and there will be more available.

    For mudguards, if you are running discs, would be looking more at the mount, especially the rear as to what fenders to run, Google search for images of your frame with mudguards to see what has been done, a you haven;t given any details of your bike.

    29er wheels are also 700c/622, search using those terms.

    And does anyone know of some mudguards that are compatible with disk brakes? for my CX bike
    You have to change the route the struts take to the bolt, so a bit of problem solving may be required from the installer

    SKS makes good stuff, hire installation help, if you cant figure it out on your own..
    if you buy them at a shop you can ride the bike into, they may put them on for the cost of the mudguards themselves.

    If you're looking for a 130 rear hub disc compatible, the offerings are limited. There's a lot available with the 135 rear hub spacing. I eventually gave up my search for "affordable" factory wheels and ended up building wheels. My search was further complicated by my wanting / needing a Campy freehub. I eventually found Novatec hubs on eBay that were exactly what I was looking for. The rest was easy (sort of).

    'Hope Hoops' should be available on Hope 2 Pro Evo Hubs with Mavic TN 719 29" (700c) rims. Fairly lightweight and bombproof. The Hope hubs are brilliant too. Usually retails around 300-400.

    Where are you located?

    Poisonbikes has got some cheapish wheels.

    If your bike can fit mudguards depends on what mounts your frame has. Nothing to do with the wheels, other than tyre size and clearance.

    I'd really be surprised if the spacing weren't 135mm. Double-check that it is 135mm, then look at cross-country 29er wheels.

    Given the 5mm comes off the left side, 130-135..

    seems the disc will be too close for standard caliper iso/post-mount types, that don't move.

    those frames move the mount over that distance to the left..
