Hunter 29?

There is about a 1 inch space above a 26" Nokian 3.0 on my 26" Hunter frame. The diameter of an inflated Nokian is about 28 1/2". Has anyone tried mounting a 29" wheel to a 26" Hunter frame? Will it work?

I’m pretty sure Frank A from florida uses a 29er wheel in his 26 inch Hunter frame. I think my 29er wheel and tire only measure 29 inches or slightly less, so you should be OK with it.


Yes, Mojoe is correct. The Nano fits my stock Hunter 26 with plenty of clearance. Just remember when building up a wheel that the spacing is based on the Sem Deluxe (or Profile) hub and the Suzue is a little bit too narrow at the bearings.
