Mine also came with a sram 11x cassette and it's definitely XD.
Thanks for confirming! And no boost right?

Hmm maybe it is XD. The front takes a maxel thru lever. See pics! Would have thought it was the same setup as yours Aaron.

Think that HG or xD would work for an 11 speed GX cassette. I reckon it would be better to go with xD, particularly if you're intending to go to 12 speed at some stage.

Yeah, would have thought it was an XD hub you have already.


I seem to recall someone telling me that a certain bike shop, which shall remain nameless, shoved a boost rear wheel into his non-boost frame, so ya never know 😂

James,
You need 142mm spacing if your bike frame is non-boost. As you said the 148 is boost and would be too wide for your frame spacing.


I had a SRAM GX 11 speed on my old bike and it was an XD driver rather than HG (Shimano/SRAM NX) driver.

My rear wheel is hopping all over the place when it moves at any speed. I was told it was on the way out by the bike shop about a year ago so I figure after almost 5 years it’s probably overdue retirement. I want to make sure the wheelset is compatible with current bike components so I don’t have to go buying loads of additional parts when I plan on selling the bike in the near future.


Bike is a Canyon Strive 2016. The current wheels are DT Swiss E1700 Spline 2 27.5. Cassette is standard SRAM GX 11 speed


Was looking at:
https://www.bike-discount.de/en/buy/dt-swiss-e-1900-spline-27%2C5-30mm-cl-rear-wheel-792358


Would 12/142mm - SRAM XD fit it or would I need to go with 12/142mm - Shimano to fit my non XD cassette? Or is a non XD  fit called “Shimano”?!


Or would something like this be better:
https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ie/en/nukeproof-horizon-v2-rear-wheel-102t/rp-prod195301
12 x 142 HG


OR go for the set of cheaper Nukeproofs:
https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ie/en/nukeproof-neutron-v2-27-5-non-boost-pair-with-ard/rp-prod202474


Am I correct in thinking 148 x 12 would be for boost and too big for thru axel?


Cheers,
James

As per title I'm looking for a 210 x 55 rear shock (with standard eyelets each end to tide me over until a shock I have on order arrives. Have a bike built up and ready to go, just have no shock for it.


Cheers,
George.

I'm slightly taller than you at 1.81m, and I demoed both the large and medium strive last year. Both fit me fine, and if I was forced to choose I'd probably go with the medium. Definitely felt a bit more nimble and playful.

Thanks for the info Im definitely leaning towards a medium as the jump from a 10 year old 26er bike to modern bike with modern geo and reach numbers and to top it off a 29er
Turns out after doing a proper measure I'm a fraction less than 5'10'' which as disappointing as it is I've lost height helps a little with the sizing

I'm taking a mate of mines 2018 spectral-on out for a spin the weekend after checking geometry geeks site, it turns out the reach is 5mm longer and the stack is 9mm less in the spectral medium so should give me a good idea on how the medium strive will feel

Thanks for the input and thanks everyone for the help

The sizing should be the easiest part when buying a bike but loosing too much sleep over it
