    120mm rear hub, 125mm rear dropouts. Spacers?

    I've got a wheelset with a 120mm rear hub spacing that I plan on using for cross. I'm buying a Motobecane Fantom Cross Uno frameset, and it has 125mm rear dropouts.

    Are there spacers I can buy for my hub that'll space it out to an effective 125mm? I figure there's enough axle threading left that this will work.

    "Frame Motobecane Custom Butted and Tapered 4130 Cromoly with 120mm Track Dropout, water bottle mount, Rear Rack brazeons, Fender eyelets "

    It is advertised with 120 mm rear spacing. See above quote from the website.

    Hmm, looks like you're right. The website I'm buying from has contradicting information:

    - "Rear Spacing
    125.0 mm"

    - "Motobecane Custom Butted and Tapered 4130 Cromoly with 120mm Track Dropout"
