29er 15mm Wheel upgrade query

Postby stevenb » Wed Dec 05, 2012 12:39 pm

I have a Trek Superfly and am wanting to upgrade the wheels.
The Amercian Classic Race 29 wheels are my choice.

Can soemone kindly confirm that I am ok to bolt on my current Shimano SLX rotors to the wheels?
Being a 15mm front axle wheel can I keep my standard Fox RL 32 Float 29 fork?

I don't believe I need to consider anything from my reading around.

Thanks in advance.

is your current fork 15mm axel?
are your rotors 6 bolt fitting?

Current fork is a standard axle (assuming 9mm then).
Rotors are Shimano SLX 6 bolt.

Info from the Euro bike website is a little confusing for me as I am unsure what all the numbers mean:

HUBS / SPACING
Disc 130 100mm, 15mm Thru Axle Disc 100mm Rear Disc 225 135mm, 10mm x 135mm Thru Axle Disc, All Mountain Disc Thru Axle 12mm x 135mm X-12 142mm Thru Axle Disc

Just spoke to Eurobike themselves who are AM distributors.
He said 6 bolt rotors are fine to use so I can use mine.
He also said the wheels come as standard with 9mm axle but 15mm can be requested.....which kind of contradicts their website info.
If not the selling shop should be able to swap axles for me.
Looks like I'm sorted then.

Cheers
