    Glad to see you still have the spare wheel and your bike and house and everything. My parents live in SR and have been evacuated three years in a row now. Has the weather changed yet, so you're getting any rain?

    You might start with saying what kind of bikes you would like this rear wheel to fit.
    Then I'll give you Big Jake's # ;)

    I read somewhere you can swap Sherco, Gas Gas and Montesa rear wheels with the right sized spacer. I know a non pro GG rear is slightly different than the pro and looks like it can be fitted with a different spacer.

    Not sure about the current crop of bikes, but I was running a set of wheels from a 2002 GasGas TXT Pro on my 2002 Sherco 2.9. They were identical replacements. Of course I used the Sherco axles and spacers. But even the brake discs were the same.

    Good question I have a 200 and 300 beta but ordered a new Vertigo 200 so when the Vertigo gets here I will fool around with the Beta wheel and see how far off it is .
