    130 mm hub on 135 mm aluminum frame OK?

    I bought a used Trek 7300FX for my wife. The rear is spaced for a 135 mm hub, but I want to used a higher quality, lighter wheelset. I don't expect that putting a standard 130 mm rear wheel on it will compromise the frame integrity or cause any other problems.

    Am I wrong?

    What wheelset? Just pop some 2mm spacers under each lockring.

    I'm putting in a set of Cosmos. I guess I could put in the spacers, but are they really needed? Each side of the rear triangle is going to be deflected only about 2mm without the spacers
