Will these wheels fit?

Postby Lunchbox » Wed Jan 02, 2013 18:07 pm

Hi,

Bit out of touch with the MTB scene but recently picked up a 2009 Scott Scale 2nd hand and looking to upgrade the wheelset to something lighter. I'm aware the rear dropout design for hubs has changed not so long ago and so I'm wondering if the following wheels will fit, or if I need adapters of some kind to fit my older frame? Any help appreciated.

Will fit fine. How much you seen the wheels for? Might be cheaper/better options.

There's a number of sets available and not sure which I'd require. The bike has hope quick release skewers fitted currently f & r. I don't think for the price there is lighter.

Your bike requires standard quick release front and rear.

These are lighter for similar money:

or these:

I prefer the latter.
