Disc wheels for 110 spaced frames

I have been looking around for disc options for my frame which has 110mm spacing. I haven't been able to find anything other than 120. In Osaka the LBS told me I could use an axel conversion kit but it would only cut the difference down by 5 or 6mm or so. I don't want to stretch my frame even if it is only 5mm. I haven't been able to find anything via search, just 110 hub discussions and a lot of stem discussions.

Any suggestions other than not using a rear disc?

why don't you want to stretch the frame? if it's 110 spacing i'm assuming it steel, correct. you don't need to cold set the frame, just pull apart slightly when you put the wheel on.

when shimano came out with 8 speed in '89 or '90, the dropout spacing went from 126 to 130 mm for the extra cog. their early hubs had a tapered nut on one end to make it slide in more easily on older frames since 126 was still the standard dropout spacing.

Even older disc wheels (in the days of 120-126 spacing) were not 110.
What kind of frame do you have that has 110 OLD spacing that would take a disc wheel?
My dedicated path bike has 110mm rear but i just find it better to run a lightweight tubular wheelset than to mix in a new looking disc. (although I have a 126mm disc for my TT bike)

some of the japanese keirin track bikes have 110 spacing in the back instead of 120. iirc, the fronts are 90 instead of 100.

It is a Japanese frame however the front is 100. I was hoping maybe the older HED discs would fit but i haven't found any luck on that.

With a steel frame, I think it's completely safe to do what you can with spacers then stretch the rest of the way. It's only gonna be a couple of millimeters. Wouldn't do it with a carbon fame, but I wouldn't worry about it with a steel bike.

Nice idea.

I know the frame is steel therefore it should be somewhat flexible, but I really don't want to stretch it. Even if it is only a few mm.

Why wouldn't you want to stretch it? There's no possible harm that can come from moving the stays, unless your Hulk-like strength tears the thing apart.

Personally depending on the wheel u might not need to change the axle but change the spacers. I would change the axle as the lbs told you, the extra axle coming out can be fixed usng extra washers (will look like crapppp) or just cut it. Using a dremel will take like 10 minutes or less. Done.
