    Grove wheels for 29s on my CCEx

    I got a set of the light weight 29s for Christmas. Going to take the skis and 850s off if spring ever arrives in Minnesota and the snow melts. I would like to get a separate set of wheels with disks to simplify the swap. Looking at Cubcrafters and Grove they seem to sell the the entire kit with calipers and pads. Can just wheels and disks be purchased and would it save any cash?

    I tried calling Grove but the crabby lady said to call back when I have the part number for the wheels I currently have. I wasnt at the hangar and CC uses their own part #. Seems CC has a better price than Grove. Might be different wheels?

    Is this an easy swap or do I need some sort of extension. I have never had tires bigger than 850s. What sort of pressure should I run for grass and pushing around the hangar?

    Still waiting for spring

    Jake, I do the same with my wheel-penetration skis. I had a set of 40-86 Cleveland wheels and they work fine with the Grove calipers. My Grove wheels with 31's mounted are 61-1A's. These are both for 1.50" dia. axles.
