I need to replace my rear wheel and have a few questions on component compatibility before I make a purchase.
My bike is a Specialized 2018 Rockhopper Pro; the link gives its stock components/spec.
I have modified it to run 1x11. (Probably) relevant specs:
- Rear hub: Shimano Center Lock, disc, 135x9mm QR, 28h
- 1x11 setup with SunRace 11 speed cassette 11-46
Now, for new wheel choices I have considered the following two:
- Shimano | Mavic - Deore XT FH-M8000 | XM 119 - 28 / 29 Inch Rear Wheel - Centerlock - QR
- Shimano WH-MT500 29" 5/135 mm
Aside from the obvious - 29", QR, centerlock - what else do I need to be aware of in terms of compatibility? I'm unsure whether the two wheels will fit my bike. How can I tell if my cassette, for example, will fit onto the hub of the wheel?
