DIY Cyclocross Bike Project – Upgrading The Wheels

Posted by on in Projects, Wheels & Tires


I upgrade the wheelset on my home built CX/Gravel bike. It still had the original Trek 700 hybrid wheels with a 7 speed freewheel. I upgraded them to hand built road bike wheels set up for a 8,9,10 speed cassette. I installed a 7 speed cassette on there with a 4.5mm spacer. That way I could stay with the 7 speed shifters for now. I plane to upgrade later to 9 or 10 speed on the rear.
