    Weird NJS frame spacing

    Ok so I searched around this forum and the rest of the internet and I have an NJS Presto frame that I am currently building up and it has 110/8 slotted rear spacing, which means it SHOULD have 100/8 front spacing also, but it seems to have 100/9, as my 100/9 spaced front wheel on my Kilo TT fits on my Presto's fork.

    I was just wondering if this was even possible as an NJS frame or if the front was filed to fit a 100/9 axle.

    Thanks!

    It is possible that the previous owner filed the fork ends to fit 9mm axle. If that is the case, I'd check the alignment of the fork ends to see if they are parallel on both sides.

    Of course, the NJS stamp is now void.

    It means the person who ordered that frame ordered the standard fork with 110/8 track ends.

    You have nothing to worry about.

    Ok, cool. I was just wondering if this was possible. From my search for real ultimate power and infinite skids I've only come across conversations about 100/8 110/8 and 100/9 120/10 spacing, combined in those manners.
