I'm contemplating an Alfine 8 in the rear of a mid-80's touring frame with 126mm rear spacing. Although I'm not opposed to getting a pro to properly cold set the frame, I'm wondering as some have suggested that I might be able to spring the triangle to get it in, or is 9mm just too much to force? And if I do get it in, I guess the problem comes back when replacing a flat on the road. In the dark. And rain of course.
Thanks for any advice!
