I just bought a Trek 7.1 fx bike off Facebook marketplace and took it in to get it looked at for a once over. What came back was a broken axel in my rear wheel which is the biggest problem, and why now I can’t ride it till it’s fixed. I started looking for options for a new wheel specifically used near me and found a 700c wheel set which I think may work but was hoping one of you could steer me if I should do it.
My current wheels have a 622x19 and the new ones I’m looking at (a set) are 622x18, question one, are these differences okay for my bike? Does that “18 vs 19” make a difference in how my bike will ride?
Secondly, my bike is a 7 speed on the rear hub and these new wheels are for an 8-9-10 speed hub. Will these actually fit to my bike? Is there any information that I should get to check if these will fit?
Both brands of wheels are bontrager the current ones on the bike are bontrager at-750 and the ones I’m looking at buying are bontrager Camino
