    I've thought of doing it. You need a steel frame, so that it can be cold-set. That much squeeze will make it neccesary to re-align the dropouts as well, otherwise they'll point inwards too much.

    Are you building a new wheel for the hub? 26"xfraction is different from 26" x decimal

    Remember the horizontal dropouts. You'll want to be able to adjust the chain.
