Shimano 600 8-speed hub question
My current frame is spaced out at 126 mm in the rear. I read somewhere that the Shimano 600 8 speed hubs, which are spaced at 130 mm, have 4mm spacers on the axels. Remove one spacer and redish and you have a 126 mm spaced 8-speed rear hub. Can anyone here confirm if this is true or not?
Also, if true, what kind of problems would this pose for shifting? I can't really think of any.
I know I can just stretch the rear triangle, but I want to know what all my options are.
