velomax wheelset and cassette(2 posts)

I just ordered a new wheelset--velomax circuit comps-- and I'm excited about getting them. I have a question for anyone who may know the answer. Is there any reason why I couldn't put an MTB cassette such as an XTR on the rear hub rather than a "road" cassette?

I live in a hilly region and need the lower gearing that an mtb cassette provides.

Thanks in advance!

It will fit - but make sure your rear derailleur can handle the larger MTB cassette. Most short cage road derailleurs don't wrap enough chain to work with 30+ tooth cogs.
