    Default ST4S 5 spoke wheels

    As this has suddenly become relevant, what's the story with the 5 spoke ST4S wheels on the 851/888? Different bearings/sleeves/axles? Chain offset the same?

    I'm running a set of ST4s 5 spoke wheels.

    The rear is the same, slots straight in.

    The front is a little troublesome. You will need a bearing change and sleeve. If I remember correctly you can re-use your current wheel bearings / sleeve in the 5-spoke front wheel. The bearings can be a nightmare to remove!

    As my bike is a track bike I got a spacer made to replace the speedo drive and this then also allowed me run the more ready available wider bearings.

    I have all the details written down somewhere.

    I think there is many threads on this if you look.
    5 spoke SSie is straight fit (17mm spindle)

    ST, Monster (later) with 25mm spindle is not a straight fit (unless there are two types of rims with 25mm spindle)
    The 25mm spindle rear wheel is (from memory) 6mm wider so the cush drive needs to be modified.
