    Hub spacing, chainline for conversion

    So I'm working on a conversion...my second fixed gear.

    The drop outs are spaced at 125mm. If my hub is set at 120 I'll just have to put in some spacers, right? When I did a search it seemed a few people mentioned just tightening down the nuts a bunch. That just seems like it wouldn't work. I won't need to redish (the track wheel) or anything, yeah....?

    I'm also in need of a new BB. The shell is 68 ENG...what BB size/type do I need to get proper chainline with a track hub?

    Thanks!

    3mm spacers on either side of the hub
    no redishing required
    BB length depends on the crank you're using. what cranks are you using?
