Used fronts are always going to be both more scarce and more in demand, as bikes don't tend to reverse into objects at speed.

Yup ... Totally aware of that. Far more frontal crashes than rear enders ...

Fowlers was a bit more expensive than World of Triumph ($40). Will either buy new stateside or possibly try to deal with the used one. This was originally going to be my Wisconsin winter project ( https://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/climate-weather/blogs/winter-coming-and-its-going-be-awful-warns-farmers-almanac ), but got a bit antsier since I have the rear wheel. Hell, Bridgestone has a $30 rebate per tire till Oct 18, so might have to spend some $$ on pair of A41's. Fun fun

Hi Troop,
I have just sent you a Pm regarding the conversion as I am just about to try out the same conversion so we can share/compare notes, good luck with it.
Cheers Jim

I bought a rear and a front (19) on ebay for 350 (free shipping) with tires and discs.
Need to replace the bearings. Im also converting my XC to roadies...

You're lucky. From a 2015-2017 XR ? Plenty of < 2014 XR wheels, but not 2015-2017. I did get a like new rear wheel off a 2017 XRt for $265 (USD)/shipped. Not so lucky on the front :(

I think it is from before 2015. Pretty good deal anyway. What is the difference after 2015? Color? Mine is dark grey. All black would be nice. If I like the conversion maybe I will have them repainted
