    Paragon like sliders for a boost frame machined to fit 135 or 142

    Seems like an obvious thing right? Buy a new frame that has sliders but have a few wheelsets that are either 135 or 142. Seems like you could machine the sliders to have the necessary spacer features built in...
    Anyone seen anything like this available?
    I have 2 very nice and functional 135 (with a 10mm through DT Swiss) carbon wheelsets that I move between a couple bikes as needed and hate to ditch them or create wheelsets that are not interchangeable.

    142 vs 148 rear is only 3mm per side so I bet you could make up sliders that would work in all combos. Heck since the brake are mounter to the slider I bet you would not even need rotor spacer

    148 wheels in "non boost" frames
    142 wheels in "boost" frames.
    135 wheels in "boost" frames too

    I already have sliders that fit my 135 wheels to my Verhauen non boost frame. Other off the shelf sliders fit 142.

    I wonder what would happen if you just let the rear triangle flex. Hell, we can use road 11spd freehubs on standard 135 spacing and those are nearly 2mm wider than a standard 135 spaced hub with 10spd freehub. 3mm might be pushing things a bit too far though.
