Would this work for a Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub?

Given all the shift mech is on the right end, and left end is a solid axle , so it is certainly possible

to reduce the space outside the left cone . do need a locknut to not have the hub bearing adjustment not change

those 2 are the minimum..


I leave it up to you to measure what your hub minimal width is..
