So I purchased a 54cm 2002 Cervelo P2K Time Trail frame from Facebook marketplace about 3 weeks ago and it was an absolute state. I wanted to convert it from TT to a single speed/fixed gear as I'm a big fan of the Cervelo T1 but can't justify the price as of right now.
I have given it new life with a new paint job and some new components for a dropbar single speed/fixed set up. I have a slight problem as this frame is an old dedicated time trail frame so the rear spacing is about 126-130mm. I purchased a FK Fixie Wheelset not reading to much into what spacing the wheels take.
The front wheel is 100m spacing and I would imagine I won't have any problems with fitting that were as the rear wheel is 120mm and the rear wheel spacing is 126-130mm. Is there anyway around this in terms of using spacers to make it fit or should I just use a dedicated rear road wheel instead? I am happy for people to compliment and comment on my build so feel free to have your say good or bad,
Yep, spacers (Velosolo sell them), dunno about chain line though as you are gonna have trouble finding a track chainset for that bottom bracket.
I recently spaced a dura ace hub from 120 to 130 using spacers (using old road frame as fixed) One thing to be careful of is that there is enough thread engagement for the track nuts.
I wasn’t happy with mine so I swapped the DA spindle for a Miche spindle which happened to be about 10mm longer.
I've got a few 130mm wheels from when I did this exact thing to a cervelo p3/ various TT frames. They're all high end though. Best bet is either getting a halo 130mm hub (bang for buck) and lacing it to any rim you fancy.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
