hub spacing issue, 27" to 700C conversion
I read many threads on the conversion from old 27" wheels to 700C. So, i allready know that i have to put a long reach break.
The 700 wheelset that i look have a 100mm front spacing and 120 mm rear spacing. I measured on my bike and i found a rear spacing of 125mm so i assume it will fit, but for the front i have a 97mm spacing.
Can i stretch a bit the fork to make it fit the wheel, or i have to replace it?
