    126mm Rear Steel Track frame question...

    I will a 130mm fit in there and safley stretch the rear out?
    Or does it need to be cold set first?

    Well, track frames are 120mm. Old pre-8speed road frames are 126mm and, if steel, will work just fine without cold setting. - TF

    Thansk. the ebay auction says track frame, but I assumed it was an old road bike.
