    You need an ST wheel. It's the hub that's the issue.

    The spoke angle is all different so I don't see how you could do it easily

    Looks like I'm stuck with the 17inch rear on the new project... and a spare 18inch akront.

    Thanks Rob. :clap

    I'd happily swap that front g/s wheel of yours for the st wheel I have in my stash.

    Why not just lace a 19" rim onto your G/S hub? It doesn't cost THAT much to undo if you want to go back. I think your only option for a straight up bolt on 19" front wheel is the R80ST and they don't come up very often at all.
