126mm freewheel hub to 120mm??
So I'm in the process of building my first fixie. I'm considering making a bumbike rear wheel (standard freewheel hub and loctite) with some old 126mm wheels. I bought an old mercier with 120mm rear spacing. Is it bad to force the 126 to fit the 120 dropouts? Does anyone know if there are such thing as narrow spacers to get it down to 120mm?
Finally, I've read that you shouldn't mix and match the widths of the cogs/chainrings/chain?? Can someone confirm this?
