    That's helpful. I had seen the site with the video, but had also read a couple of comments from folks on forums saying that to make a 142 fit on a 135, you'd have to shave 3.5 mm off both sides. I have Tange sliding dropouts so don't have a recess like in the vid. They are QR, not thru. (Thru on the front, QR in the back, just to make wheel buying more challenging.)

    Yup, understood. However, even after shaving 3.5mm off each side of the axle/endcaps, you still have the challenge of having a 12mm diameter hole through the center of the axle. What then would you use as a skewer? AFAIK, besides the possibility of it being too long, the diameter of the skewer will be 2mm too large to fit into your dropouts (BOOST uses 12mm diameter skewers that the frame sits on, while standard (i.e., non-boost) rear dropouts use 10mm diameter axles which the frame sits on).

    But you mention the magic words: sliding dropouts! I'm not sure how similar Tange's are to Paragon's, but if they're similar/same, you can get the proper dropouts for that wheelset and call it a day:
    Driveside: http://www.paragonmachineworks.com/r...m12-x-1-5.html
    Discside: http://www.paragonmachineworks.com/r...mm-skewer.html

    That said, Hozn's suggestion to get the swapout QR endcaps (if available for that hub) are a cheaper and better way to go IMO in your case.

    Someone is selling the WTB ci31 rims on Facebook right now - says they're brand new. Unfortunately for them, they're asking more than Jenson, the link to which they provided! Doh! Anyway, they're on Jenson right now for $540.

    Thanks. Recent veterinary visit = 4 carbon wheels, so on hold until next year. Such is life.

    He's practically bionic at this point. Both knee joints rebuilt with metal plates. But this time it's diabetes. Boo indeed.

    I won a (single) WTB Riddler 37c a while back and decided to get a second Riddler in 45c for Croatan. Set them up tubeless yesterday (45 front, 37 rear) and they are pluuuuuuuuuush. They're at whatever pressure was needed to get the beads to pop (so relatively high) and even then I felt like I cruising through the potholes in Georgetown and along Penna Ave.

    I think I need to hear the story about how you won a single tire.

    Totally can't remember! Possibly GRUSK two or three years ago?

    I'd be interested to hear how well they last. I just read a review of an $8,500 titanium Moots that had the Riddlers on it (the bike, not the review). They said the tire cut up easily, but they were using it offroad.

    Review for anyone interested:
