Hi, I have just recently bought an older style steel colnago (frame only). I have measured the rear dropout spacing at 132mm. I have put a 9 speed wheel on it. The 9 speed came out of my Lemond Tourmalet, which is spaced at 130mm. The wheel does not fit at the moment as I found out face first on the drive when I gave it a tentative ride.
Firstly, is this 132mm spacing to be expected? I have not been able to find any info on this spacing. Or could this be the result of a bad cold setting?
Secondly, if 132mm is fair dinkum, can I still use my 130mm rear hub, replacing the current axle, with a longer longer axle and adding more spacers?
LBSs have not been able to advise and I have searched for info on these forums to no avail. Thank you.
