Hi

I've replaced my old Regina 6 speed with a sunrise 13-28 7 speed.
I found that the small cog was fouling on the frame, so I stripped the hub and moved the spacer between the cone nut and locknut on the non drive side to the drive side,which enabled me to push the cogs a little further inboard and that works ok.
However, now the wheel passes off centre between the seat stays ( not central beneath the calliper ) although it's equidistant between the chain stays.
have I done something dumb? maybe stick to a 6 speed?
Cheers
Chris

You need to re-dish the wheel so the rim is in the centre of the frame. Either that or return it back to six speed :)
