Using a BMX 110 OLD hub on a road frame for SS
Hi BF mechanics! I mostly post on C&V forum, but I thought I'd spread out a bit.
Occasionally I got the urge to build a SS road bike, but then I'd lie down and the urge went away
However, now I think I'll try it, but it seems like respacing and redishing a freewheel road hub is kinda cobby, and I don't want to spend alot of money until I decide if I like riding SS.
Has anybody tried using a BMX hub on a road frame spaced at 126mm? I'm assuming one would need to add spacers to make up the 16mm. Just seeing if anyone has done this and had good/bad results.
