|Have a spare road wheel? If it drops right in then it is 130mm... If it drops right in with an MTB hub then it is 135mm...|

|Had mine for just the tail end of last season. I wonder if the spec'd hubs are 135's, as they go in a bit tight. (WTB speed)
Ritchey components (bar. seatpost, cranks)
Climbs like a stiff BB road bike (see below)
Not steel; might be a bit harsh (see above)
CC radially laced WTB hub, caused some bearing play that couldn't be adjusted out. WTB's fix (as relayed to shop mech) was loctiting bearing races...now bearings permanantly set too tight.
Avid six's squeal like crazy
Got one, want one, or just wondering?
|Have one too..||Slacker Joe|

|And was just curious, haven't heard much talk about them since CC had them on sale.
Mine came (from CC) with Ritchey hubs though, strange that. I have no problems getting the wheel in the dropouts, sorry to hear about your problem, that sounds like a pretty half-ass "fix". I've had good experiences with WTB's warranty dept. in the past, they were willing to make me happy - maybe give them another call and see what they can do?
I haven't heard much noise from the Avids either, really only in the slop do I hear a mild squealing.
I do find the ride a little harsh, but I haven't had any other experience running 35mm tires @ 50+ psi off road, so I don't know how much I can blame the frame. I'm pretty happy with the handling though, and if I ever felt the need to go custom steel, I'd probably duplicate the geometry.
Thanks for the impressions!
