PostSubject: Front wheel question   Thu Nov 26, 2015 11:14 am

Gents,
I'm installing new rubber and assumed there would be an arrow somewhere on the front wheel or disc carrier for direction of rotation, didn't find one.
I seem to remember the right angle tire valve stem pointed to the right side of the bike which is my only reference now that I didn't mark the wheel on removal.
Am I correct about this? The spacer and axle have the same OD so it looks possible to mount the wheel either way. Don't want to have to mount the tire twice.
Thanks for your help.

Tod

Spoked wheels are unidirectional. As long as the rim is not offset from centre.
It is only non symmetrical cast/forged wheels that are meant to be mono directional.
The outer ends of the spokes are meant to be trailing.

Thanks guys. New Pirellis installed. It did look symmetrical to me but may as well have the valve pointed right for checking pressure on the side stand.
