I got a crazy good deal on a 2018 Cannonade Synapse - So much so I didn't pay attention to it having huge wheels/tires (21c rims and 30mm tires) until I got home. So now I want to swap out the wheels so I can run smaller tires.
Iv'e never dealt with a thru axle before - What do I need to know when buying wheels?
The axle has a lot of numbers on it Rear: 17 L4 QR51X-12-160-P1.0-16.5 Front: 17 L1 RQ51M-12-125-p1.5-10
Other than knowing it is a 12mm axle, do I need to pay any attention to anything else? Didn't know if there was a width measurement or anything I needed to deal with.
Would I just use the axles that came on the bike with different wheels, or will I need to buy new axles?
