Frame builder in Edmonton

Hi all I'm looking for a frame builder in Edmonton. I'm looking to have a vintage frame spread from 126mm to 130mm. I want it professionally done and aligned on a jig.

Any competent mechanic can do this, this alignment does not require a jig but rather, proper measuring gauges and the right tools.

On that note, I think I am the only frame builder in the area and also volunteer and teach at the Commuter's Society which is a spot where this work could be done quickly and rather inexpensively by quite a number of the staff or volunteers there as they are competent folks.

Thanks Sixty Fiver. I've decided to get a rear hub from Velo Orange that comes spaced at 126mm instead of spreading the frame.
