Hi,

If I want to run a contemporary Chorus or Record drivetrain including hubs on a classic 1970's 120mm bike, is there any way to do this ?? I do not want to cold set my 120 mm frame to 126 mm. I have not looked closely at the newer 8-speed / 9-speed hub and don't even know if they have spacers (that could be thinned) or not.

Thanx,
