Hi Guys.........some advise needed here please

Does anybody know if you can fit a B175 front wheel to a D10 without changing the rim offsets ?

I am aware that the spindle needs to be changed over to fit the D10 forks.  

Reason is that I have a good front wheel here but I am not sure which 4 speed bike it came off originally.  I want to fit it to the D10.  

All the best

Hi Sponge,

I was fiddling with my D-reg D10 yesterday, c/w full-width front hub...why was it fitted with one of those I ask myself, bike seems standard, it`s not a Sports model, unless someone`s revamped it. I can measure offset this evening if you wish?

Not yet owned a B175, but my D5 has heavyweight forks, unfortunately it is under a pile of other stuff, but I imagine that your front wheel swap will be straight forward once you change the spindle with relevant bearings/brake back plate.....but I suppose it`s the anchor component you`re concerned about, yes?

Thanks Blue,  If you get a chance I would be interested in your rim offset measurement. I can then compare it to the wheel I have here. Might provide a clue.  

I am quite comfortable with the anchor component - I am pretty sure the brake plate will situate exactly where it should be and that the B175 the spindle will fit the B175 forks but I have a feeling that (if it originally came off a D14/D10 etc),  the wheel might then be off centre and I will then have to have it sorted out by a wheel builder.  Reason is that the B175 forks are wider than the D10 forks - so in my mind I have a suspicion that the wheel will be out of line with the bike. Perhaps I am looking for problems where there are none.

If, however, the rim offsets for a B175 are the same as a D10/D14/D7 then, theoretically, there should be no problems.

Hope this makes sense ?

Hi Sponge,

With my D10 front-end still bolted up but with brake cable already disconnected, I placed an 18.5" straight edge covering the wheel rim in two places, across the gap between the brake arm and bottom of fork legs and sitting squarely on the brake plate. Measurement between edge of wheel rim and straight-edge measured 21mm in both instances.

That`s with a full hub set-up that has never been rebuilt. HTH.

Cheers,Blue.
