Answer: 
The 26" wheels will physically fit into the frame however be aware that the frames geometry has been optimized for the 27.5" wheels and will perform best when used with these wheels.

If 26" wheels are required; it would be worth while considering the previous seasons 26" Mega TR.

Answer: 
Take a look at the Michelin pro-race 3 tires in red. They have a special on them right now. I purchased a set recently. They are a tough tire. Great rolling resistance, great look!

For some reason after mounting them I seem to have picked up one to two mph hour.

Strangely, they appear to hold air better between rides for some reason. Tight fit but with patience can be mounted by hand,without tools . The special Chain Reaction has right now includes two free Michelin Tubes.

Answer: 
I too wanted to upgrade my rear wheel, my bike also has 10mm x 135mm rear, the Mavic Deemax Ultimate offers a 12mm x 135mm option which comes with adapters to fit a 10mm rear drop out, I have brought this wheel and am using it in this way with the adapters, Its strong, light and looks great, if you really want to spend the money on the best wheel...

Debes de revisar que tu cuadro sea compatible con ruedas de 27.5 " ya que normalmente los cuadros sirven para acomodar un tipo de rueda.

Answers

Answer: 
As far as we are aware there is no rim brake option.

However a custom wheel build with a Mavic UB rim and a hub selected from our collection could provide a quality wheel at similar pricing.

Please contact out Technical Department for some advice and suggestions should you be interested.

Answer: 
An xD driver (freehub) is required to run a SRAM 11-speed Mountain Cassette. There are numerous complete factory built wheel options and also standalone hub options for an in-house wheel build.

For more advice, please supply the dropout measurements on your frame/fork and we can advise further.
