Fluid2 Rear Drop Out Spacing?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Fluid2 Rear Drop Out Spacing?

Hi guys, quick question.

The Fluid 2 has three spacing options on the non-drive side, 120, 130, and 135. According to the site, 130 is for road bikes. When I put my road bike in, its actually the 135 option that fits, which is technically for mountain bikes. Am I doing something wrong? Cycleops is closed on the weekends lol.

Sorry, ALR 6 (no disks).

I clipped it in the 135 option and there was no wiggle when I peddled for a few minutes but again I feel uneasy as people are mentioning that its supposed to be 130mm for road bikes and 135 for mt (and disk road bikes).

I mean, it was a pretty tight fit at 135. My only concern is marring my rear drops out from over pressure from the clamp.

I have a ALR on a fluid 2 and it also sits only on the 135/largest setting.

So quick update. 130mm fits but its really tight. It pushes the spring in the lever to the edge while 135mm has the spring only depressed half way (look at my great illustrations for clarification).

Again, my main concern is it being "too tight" that it could damage the frame (warping).

Thoughts?
