r20 / Dawes Kingpin -- 135mm rear end?
I'm sitting here looking at a nice set of wheels I have that are currently going unused.
It's a set of 406 rims laced to SA / drum braked hubs (8 speed rear). I'm thinking that maybe something like a Dawes Kingpin or r20 might be a good frame to build up around these wheels as a winter / trailer pulling machine...
I know the front fork should be able to be spread to 100mm without too much trouble. Any idea if the rear triangle will be "easily" spread to 135mm to take the rear hub?
If so, how about fitting big apples (406), is there clearance?
Alternatively, if there are any suggestions for a decent (and cheap) frame that could be used to house this wheelset, I'm all ears!
