Force 135 hub on a smaller frame?
I have an extra wheelset and wonder if I can fit the 135 rear hub on a Litespeed Unicoi ST without problems. (I want to keep the current Crossmax SL with narrow and slicker tires for commuting, then swap the other wheelset with beefy tires for trails)
Ti is flexible and doesn't fatigue much so I should be able to force it...
Any experience / thoughts / advice?
you'll need to realign the dropouts or you'll stress the axle and likely break it after a while.
seen it happen.
The Unicoi is 135mm spaced...why wouldn't it fit?
Origin 8 Scout 29
Ha... mine is an older model, the hub on the current Mavic wheel looks narrower than the 135 that I have lying around but I guess looks may be deceiving
