new wheels for 96mm front dropouts

Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a new wheel to replace my old 27" rims for my early '80s record. The new wheel is 700, and all seemed normal until I tried to install it.

Ends up the hub for my wheel is 100mm, but my fork width is 96mm. I sort of assumed that all hubs were 100mm (durh..). I noticed that the only preventing installation is the lock nuts. Is it possible to get thinner lock nuts or do they come in a standard size?

I want to avoid cold setting the frame at all possible costs.

thanks for you help,
