Frame stretching

Posted on
  • anyone tried DIY frame stretching?
    had a look on Sheldons site and his "length of 2x4 method" seems decidely medaieval..

    need to open up the back end (matron!) on a Merican to take a 10 speed hub....doesnt seem to difficult to me thinking a lenght of threaded stud and some nuts....wind out slowly inside the drop-outs to the desired width ( or take it a bit beyond)...leave for a while...remove...


    any thoughts?
