Syncros XR 2.0 29 CL RWS Made by DT Swiss ??


A Seller offering wheels says it is 148 mm thru axle, which my road bike is also, and I want to keep everything compatible with my 11 speed Shimano drive train, derailuer/chain. Seller believes it is 10 speed only. Yes? No?


I want a rear wheel to mount on my bike only for riding on my kinetic road machine trainer. My thinking is, if an 11 speed cassette will fit this wheel's hub, I can use this wheel on my bike.

AFAIK, thru-axle post-dates 11 speed, and there is no 10 speed-only thru-axle hub.

10 speed road/mountain freehubs can fit 11 speed mountain cassettes. Mountain cassettes are typically 11-34 or higher gearing

Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.

148 TA is MTB boost and almost never is on anything that can be close to being called a road bike, which is usually 142 TA like older, non-boost mountain bikes. I would really double check your rear spacing!

Hyperglide hubs intended for 11 speed MTB use are spaced the same as Shimano's historic 8/9/10 spacing because the very large big cog is dished inwards towards the spokes, and are not compatible with 11 speed road cassettes except 11-34 cassettes.

I'll second the statement that 148 is boost spacing and there is almost no chance that a road bike has boost spacing. Your road bike almost certainly has a 142mm thru axle rear spacing.
