    Dura Ace 7600 Hubs with 130mm Spacing?

    Hi,

    I have some Dura Ace 7600 track hubs and want to use then with a frame that is 130mm rearspaced. Is it possible to space these hubs out for a 130mm frame? Or if they won't quite reach, can i just clamp the frame in to make it fit Smiley

    Its a steel frame.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't clamp a 130 frame down to 120mm

    you can clamp down steel, but if it's going to be a somewhat permanent use of the frame, you'd be better off cold-setting it down to 120.

    or, yes, you can respace the DA hubs. in order to respace the hub, you can add 5mm of spacers to each side, between the cone and the locknut. you might need a longer axle, since my experience with DA hubs is that they don't have much add'l axle to work with, at all.

    Use spacers. There should be enough bolt length to clamp down the nuts.

    Thanks for that, i'll space it out as far as I can and then clamp the rest if needed.

    Thanks
