    Disc Wheelset for Vintage MTB Tandem with narrow spacing

    I need to replace the 26-inch wheelset on my '92 Ellison tandem (all aluminum frame). The rear spacing is 135mm and the front spacing is 110mm. I currently run Shimano Deore LX caliper brakes, but would like to upgrade to a solid set of disc brakes. The frame is setup to support disc brakes and has integrated disc brake mounts. I've done some searching and can't find wheelsets with the narrow spacing I need, disc compatible or otherwise. Do you have any suggestions on where I can purchase a new set of wheels with the narrow spacing needed for my build?

    Thanks,

    Trayraynor

    Have you asked in the C&V forum? There are a few tandem'ers there.
    Real cyclists use toe clips.

    Rear spacing is 135mm. I may be missing something but it seems there are lots of MTB 135mm OLD disk brake hubs out there.

    Standard MTB rear wheel spacing is 135mm. Your choices are almost endless.
