    650c wheels

    Hello all. Is it possible to space out a 130 rear hub to fit in a 135 rear spaced frame? I have a nice mtb frame that I would like to run 650c wheels with for nothing but road riding. Thanks.

    If the axle is long enough, just throw a spacer in there.

    you sure you have brakes that will work with that set-up?

    I haven't calculated yet, but I figure that there should be enough adjustment in my linear pull brake pad up/down adjustment. I believe it is about a 10mm difference between the 26in. and 650c sizes??? If not, my frame is disk ready.
