MTB K2 Hardtail Build Project - The Wheels: Swapping Disc Brake Wheelsets off the Blur

So I have some 'down' time due to a broken foot (see moto vids) and I thought I would spend a bit of that time building a hardtail mountain bike. I guess it's partly a build and mostly a project and conversion of my K2 Zed 1.0 that I primarily use as an indoor trainer. I typically ride a Santa Cruz Blur FS MTB for variety, fun and a good workout when not on the motos. I was also given a Mongoose XR 75 MTB that I will use as my trainer now while I build up the K2 Zed Hardtail.

Today I'm swapping a new/used set of wheels ON to the Blur and the take offs will go onto the K2 Zed 1.0 since they have disc rotors already attached. It also has a 9-speed cassette which I'm going to try to use as-is... even with the current 8-speed shifter, chain and derailleur. Just until I get the new 9-speed shifter installed.

I've actually never wrenched on a pedal bike before (to any serious degree) so I consider this a fun challenge and learning experience. So hang tight with me and we'll see how this all turns out!

Thanks for watching!
