hi all

got a classic 105 7 speed hub with 126mm axle.

i want to convert to 8 speed and 130mm axle

which do you reckon is less faff

1) acquire donor hub, swap axle, swap freehub, redish wheel
2) acquire hub, rebuild wheel with new hub

i can build wheels, so it's not really a financial question, more a time/faff question
