Hi am new to the forum but have been lurking for a few months now. Can anyone advise me on my first fixed build?
Just received a set of Ambrosio wheels for a fixed build however I am having a few problems. The front hub spacing (10mm) is too big for my forks (9.5ml spacing) the wheel will fit with a bit of a struggle but I am worried I am stretching the fork a bit much. Spacing on the rear of the frame is ok however I am having problems fitting the rear axel into the rear horizontal dropouts (dropouts are 11 mm wide). Do I have a funny sized frame? It is a fillet brazed Dawes circa early 1960ís. This is my first fixed and road frame build and any solutions or advice will be appreciated.
