However, the example he quoted (incidentally, the same one Daithi showed by Stephen Botcher) was a paralever to monolever conversion. Anyway, Prutser, are you absolutely certain that a standard, center laced 18x2.5 will fit on the back of my bike? I guess I need to take a look and see just how much room is back there, bike's been down for a bit and I've been ignoring her.
I did sent a pic in a pm to Daithi that showed the 18" rim in my former R100gs Paralever.
The new owner had the wheel laced up by Haan wheels in NL.
I did make pics from the clearance. I will try to post them tomorrow.
I Can ask the guy to drop by and measure if its off center. And how much if thats the case !
