Good point Shaun, although nothing a hacksaw couldn't sort....Would have been a whole lot easier if a 126mm wheel was brought in the first place though.

If it's a popular hub then getting a 126mm axle complete with spacers might be easier than a hacksaw :)

You could try reducing the spacers to lose 5mm off each side, but it looks like that's not going to be enough. You could try getting 10mm off the drive side and redish the wheel slightly. Slacken the drive side spokes 1/2 a turn then tighten the non drive side spokes 1/2 a turn, repeat until the wheel is centred again then true up :)

According to my kids I am a brain dead dinosaur ......... :)

That new wheel looks very nice, rim looks a bit weinmann (ish) but not quite concave enough.

Wonder what the hub is?
