It probably would. I read about it yesterday. I would need to get V-O to give me more specs.

But it really isn't hard to fit a spindle, and it's a lot cheaper. Old ones in LBS junk boxes are anywhere from free to $8.00 or so. I just want to see what others ran into to try it out.

And if I convert from single to double (add a front mech, shifter control and some of sort of chain tensioner) I really just need to find another spindle for the added chainline. Where if I use the V-O cartridge it's another $65 to do a trial fitting, and of course even worse (around $200) to get a Phil Woods sized up to the new width.
