The trick is that these hubs, and the S/A, have an "overdrive" in the third gear (typically 4:3 ratio), which compensates for the small wheels.
I built a jig for doing the widening, which I would allow others to use. For liability reasons, I am not willing to do the widening for others myself. The bending required does not exceed any reasonable "cold setting" limits for the steel used.
your luck may vary!
