Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Rear Spacing

Is there a way to get 120mm spaced hubs to fit 110mm frame. If so how.
Thanks for any info

If it's a steel frame, cold set it.

What hubs?
You may be able to convert them depending on the make.

Some hubs are easy to respace. Some dishing may be necessary. A steel frame can be cold set to match the hub. It's not hard, you just have to be very methodical or you end up with a frame that doesn't want to track straight.
