110mm NJS track hubs on 120mm spaced frame?

So is this possible? I came across a good deal on NJS wheelset/hubset and the spacing in 110 in the back. How would i get a good fit? Use 5mm washers on each side of the hub? and how will my chainline be affected? Thanks guys

Bend the frame inwards by squeezing it...

Or re-space the hub.

Your best bet will be respacing your hub with 5mm spacers on each side.

I wouldn't cold set the frame, you could easily misalign the dropouts, misalignment could cause your wheel to not seat properly and put unnecessary stress on your wheel axle.

I think your chainline will be fine, shouldn't be a big issue.

Huh? You probably don't need a new axle. Just add 5 mm of spacers to each side. It's not that much of a difference.

what's the wheelset? i have a 110 spaced DA hub that didn't have flatted axles so i had to file them haha. either way it doesn't really matter, and i know on both of my 110 hubs the axles are long enough to throw 5mm of washers in for 120 use.

Your chainline will be off by about 3mm which is close to the entire width of your chain.


Just because its a good deal, doesnt mean you should get it. I can find you a thousand good deals and road hubs, or even disk wheels, but you shouldnt put them on your bike either.

1cm is a big difference. If he is buying higher end parts why jerry rig them to work on his bike? Spend a few bucks and get the proper kit. njs export has them on their hub section but you might be able to get them cheaper if you can find them on ebay.

chainline won't be off, it's 42mm from the center -> hub spacing has nothing to do with it as long as it is symmetric

I would hardly call using spacers jerry rigging. companies respace formula hubs from 120 to 135 to use on lower end single speed mountain bikes, doesn't seem to pose a problem there

To each his own I suppose. Nothing wrong with jerry rigging.
