My bike is a Genesis Day One 2011 originally Alfine 8 hub, only thing is I bought it as a fixie without the hub. I wish to purchase an Alfine 8 hub and wheel and revert it back to it's Alfine 8 glory. Current wheels are 29". I was thinking of only purchasing the rear wheel complete with hub...it is all I need. Tho, I am encouraged to buy a pair of wheels rather than just one rear as it is easier to sell a pair than just one rear wheel (the ones I would take off). The only thing is, that wheels available within my budget are both advertised as described below.
My Q - On the website the rear wheel with the Alfine 8 hub is described as 28" with dimensions of 622x19. And the front wheel is described as 29" with dimensions 622x19.
What is the difference? Dimensions are the same! Could I use these two wheels together with the same tyres I already have?
Some say 29"and 28" are the same just marketed differently for different bikes, others say they are different...what it is then?
Any help and clarification welcome!!!!!!!!!
