    Is this too much of a stretch

    I have this tiny aluminum I think scandium frame given to me that I'm going to build for my lady friend.

    Just for shitz and giggles I put a 28h bonty 135mm rear hub I had laying around. It didn't seem to put undo stress on the stays.

    What's the consensus on using this hub? -Jerry

    This question would make alot more sense if we knew the rear spacing of the frame...

    That is assembly, not building.

    there is probably a spacer on the hub that you can remove to space it back to a road length, although now that I think about that you would probably need the 130mm road axle too.

    You should be OK with the spreading. if it was the old 126mm road standard that is a lot to spread the stays but 2.5mm per side is not and issue.

    I would check to make sure that one side isn't doing all the spreading though. Could make the bike handle funny, like it is out of alignment.

    Sure I'll throw on a mtb rear wheel without the skin and see how it centers up.
