    Default Wheel options for 141mm QR hub

    I have a Norco Fluid 7.1+ and it has the dreaded 141mm QR hub.
    Been looking around for some aftermarket wheels, either 27.5+ or 29er, but with this hub I have limited options..:(...Can't find many, if any, wheels with this rear hub. All the wheels seem 148x10 TA or similar..
    Anyone know what options I have? anyone with experience with this hub and if any conversions possible?
    I kind of regret getting this bike because of this..

    I believe you can buy a 148 x 12 DT Swiss hub or wheelset and get the qr adapters, bringing it down to 141 QR.

    Thanks for that. Seems I have very limited options.

    The hack in me would consider machining out the 10mm dropouts to 12mm and running a 142x12 either wedged in or take 0.5mm off each side.
    It's a moronic standard. In all honesty, I'd replace the frame.
