- Fits 700c tires - from 700 x 18 up to 700 x 42 - the second number is the width, the first refers to the diameter. How wide a tire you can install depends on what type of clearance your frame has between the seat stays and brake arms.
- For rim brakes only - does not have mounts for disc brake rotors.
- Not intended for use with 27" wheeled frames. They will fit, but 700c wheels are smaller in diameter than 27" and the brake pads will not touch the rim's braking surface. Conversions are possible with brakes with longer reach arms.

Ball / Cone type hubs are the most common type of hub on planet earth. While being nearly indestructable and serviceable, optimal performance requires maintenance. If you're looking for optimizing performance, we advise that the cones are adjusted to your preferences, as well as checking cone position, and re-greasing the bearings throughout the life of the wheel. See the last image for a general diagram of this type of hub. The closer the two cones are on either side of the hub the more restrictive and poor the wheel will spin. The farther the two cones are apart, the better a hub will spin, however, it may introduce play/slop into the bearings if they are too far apart. The perfect position is where the axle turns with the least amount of resistance, and has no extra space between the cones, bearings, and hub races (has no slop or play). The lock nuts on either side of the axle lock the cone's position in place. It is not unique to our brand of wheels, but the design of ball / cone type hubs. Generally, the folks at the factory err on the side of too tight rather than loose because being slightly too tight is better than too loose. Adjustment usually requires one cone wrench (thin wrench), and a standard box/open end wrench for the locknut. There are loads of videos on youtube describing the process.
