I'm pretty sure that the short cassette option is for bikes wanting to run only a specific section of gears from the cassette i.e, the top 5 cogs of a 9 speed cassette.

The other option should be the wheel/hub combination you want.

BUT pleased do get another opinion before you go ahead and order as I'm only just becoming aware of these short cassettes and am not totally sure.

Could you contact the seller and confirm with them just to be certain. Question

Hope that helps a little. Embarassed

I would say the other size ie 142mm would be too big for the frame. most likely a 135mm fit. there are many other wheels that should fit.

Neither would be any good to you I'm afraid.

Your rear spacing is 135mm and a short cassette freehub wouldn't fit a 9 speed cassette on it.

Below are some examples of wheels that'll suit your needs.

I had the older versions of the MT66's on my last bike (MT65's) and they were superb wheels, light, and stayed nice and true.

(And I'm FAR from being lightweight)

I'd be tempted to buy a full wheelset like one of the above.

I wouldn't go too expensive, I'd buy slightly cheaper and save to upgrade the forks on the bike instead.
