    Just watch out with the rear hub... it's standard spacing, but needs a longer axle because of the brake adaptor/chain tugs.

    My maxmax is in my sig (DJ), i just built a new rear wheel round the original hub to save on hassle.

    couldnt you take the disc mount off and run some slimmer chain tensioners? i run v's so dont want the disc mount on really and what size spokes do i want?
