Cold setting a frame with disc brakes?
I have a Lemond Poprad and I have been looking for new wheels. I need a 130mm rear disc hub, and I haven't been able to find anything affordable, so I am thinking of having the frame cold set to 135mm to make life easy.
(1) Is this something I can do myself? I've read a few things online, Sheldon's write up, and it seems relatively straight forward. Any non-professional mechanics here do something similar? I'm sure I can have a shop do it, but I like working on my own bikes.
(2) Is the alignment of the disc brakes tabs going to be messed up? I've read of people with the same frame just using a 135mm rear as is with no problems while others have had alignment issues. The weather is supposed to be pretty bad tomorrow so I think I will throw in a mountain wheel I have and see what happens. But I hope some others here can chime in if they experience doing this with a disc capable frame.
Thanks for the help.
