I'm going to get flamed .......
I just ordered, from my LBS, Mavic A-714 rims, 36 hole, 3 cross, with Deore XT hubs. My Bianchi's rear spacing is only 130mm ... the LBS told me they will change the "axel and spacers" changing the hub spacing to 130mm.... is this really doable or is it hinky?
Update: The LBS just told me that they will install a 130mm axel, and install modified spaces, taking up most of the 5mm on the non-drive side (alowing for normal chain/chainstay clearences) then when they build the wheel they will adjust the dish accordingly.....I'm just being a worried parent!
