Rim Compatibility gen 1 vs 2

Just looking for some confirmation here.


1. Am I right in thinking I can purchase rims for a 2nd gen and lace my 1st gen hubs into them? Rear and Front?


2. Can I use a 2nd gen rear wheel complete with hub on a 1st gen.


I assume I can't use a 2nd gen front hub without messing around with the brake hose and routing to the left instead of the right. Not work I am interested in doing.


Thanks --

correct on all accounts - you would also need to change your front forks to use the 2nd gen front wheel

Brilliant, thanks.


Both wheels imminently need trueing and I wanted to get a 'spare wheel' to practice on at first, but later so I can do wheel work and not sacrifice my ability to ride.
