Hi, I have a single speed bike and I want to convert my wheels to quick releases for ease of repair. The problem is my rear spacing is 120mm and I can only seem to find 126mm rear wheels that are quick release. I've heard it's easy to change the spacing from 126 to 120 by changing the bolts or cutting off some length? Could I also just squeeze the 126mm wheel into the gap and just stretch the metal a bit. Also I'm worried about putting a quick release wheel in a horizontal spacing. Is it the quick release strong enough to keep the wheel in place in a horizontal fork?
I'm thinking of order this wheel on ebay? What do you guys/gals think?
