Spinergy x-rev rear wheel convert to front? possible?
ok, i know this question is really out of the field, but i was hoping someone can help. yes i am aware this wheel has a shady history.
ok, i want to convert this 130mm spaced, rear freehub wheel to a 100mm spaced front wheel.
i read a post on BF where someone grinding down the opposite driveside quick release axle to fit a 120mm fork end, so another 5mm on that side shouldn't be huge. however i am at a loss for the driveside.
would it work if i just remove the freehub? the axle is not continuous.
here is some information i found:
here the guy included some pics and showed how he got a surly fixxer on the drive side to make it a fixed gear.
now i just want it to be properly spaced, spin free in either direction, and be bolted securely, QR or allen key QR...help?
yes, i know i can just use a front wheel, but I am having trouble sourcing one, and i can find a rear thats rather cheap.
