Here's the deal...
I've got an old alloy frame with 126mm spacing, so spreading is out of the question.
I want to go 8 speed with this one.
Sheldon's '8 of 9' work around doesn't seem worth it.
Speaking to the guys down the bike shop, they seemed convinced its easy enough to shave down 2mm off each locknut.
Has anyone tried this? It sounds like a far easier option than cold setting or the '8 of 9' option... it makes me wonder why I can't find any info about this online!
Would love to hear from someone who has tried this. (Hoping this forum is good enough to avoid the classic response of 'don't bother' or 'why would you want to do that'!
