Nexus 3 Speed Hub 26" Wheel 130mm spacing ?
Hey all, I'm too lazy to spell check.
I'm converting an old Nishiki Colorado Mixte Frame into a 3 speed. The goal is to create a city/market bike for my wife with fenders, racks, baskets, whatever else. The rear spacing is currently 126mm, I'll cold set it to 130.
Anyway, I'm having trouble finding a pre-built 26" wheel, nexus 3 speed with 130mm spacing.
Anyone know a source, or am I stuck having a wheel built?
On a side note, Cruiser wheels are everywhere. Is swapping the axle for a longer one pretty straight forward? I have alot of expeirence with normal axles, but this is my first time really dealing internal hubs.
