i found a really good deal on some phil hubs. rear hub spacing is 120mm and i ride a keirin frame. will they work? i've heard keirin frames take 110mm...
ideally i want fixed/fixed but these are fixed/free but oh well, really good deal...
Not all Keirin frames are 110. I have a Nagasawa in 120. Try measuring yours.

Don't love them, use them!
so i bought my formulas/open pros from bicycle wheel warehouse about a year ago for my pake then swapped em out to my panasonic.
i checked their site and looks like the same machine-built set i bought comes with 120mm spacing. so, there's that.
now, kinda wondering if i should just wait it out to get fixed/fixed. i won't be riding single speed.
other than not being able to switch my gear ratio easily, any other disadvantages? i know i could strip the threads and be screwed and i would never put a fixed cog on a freewheel.. but how often do hubs of this caliber even strip? i've been beating the $hit out of these formulas all year and no stripping... the hubs are going for a good price.. but i don't want to end up spending more in the long run because i was so eager to hop on a good deal.
