    Rear Wheel Spacing? A 130mm in a 126 frame??

    Will a newer 130 rear hub work in an older bike with 126 spacing? I know I could expand the rear triangle to except the 130 but should I? I want to put a 8 or 9 speed setup on this bike. It is a Reynolds 531 steel frame?

    Thanks...Dan

    yeah, it'll be fine. 4mm is really pretty minimal. and the steel will handle the moving easily.
