    Nimble 9 boost to 142 spacing

    Hi

    I have a chance for a Nimble 9 frame at a great price but it 148 rear spacing and I have a wheel set I like that's 142. Can I get replacement sliders to back fit it to 142 or does will the chain line be goofy?

    Is it possible or best wait for a 142 frame?

    Yeah, by 3mm, takes 5 minutes.

    Email Canfield. When those frames were released they said they had a limited number of sliders for 12x142 hubs available. May still be a set hanging around.

    This would be a backup frame for the EPO which is built with parts I really like and want to preserve. But if I get to apoint where I have to swap out the frame the spacing would be moot at that point and a few mm redish wouldn't hurt.

    Thanks
