    135mm frame with 130mm hub

    Hi I am having a bike put together but the wheels i have right now having a 130mm rear hub and the frame calls for a 135mm rear hub...its this gonna cause me problems or wear out my frame in the 1 to 2 weeks it will take me to get a new wheelset?

    Thanks,
    Max

    my LBS said i shouldnt use spacers because then the nuts wont have as much thread to grab onto which would be worse

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    well as i said before Im getting a new wheelset within 2 weeks so I dont think its worth getting anything for my current wheelset...I just want to know if I risk the integrity of my frame by using the smaller hub for a week or so

    thanks.
