Spacers?

I should add that I have no idea what I'm talking about; my local bike doctor told he was going to re-dish a wheel someone gave me and I did what I always do and went with it without asking many questions. It's great having an lbs you can trust. In other news this Morrisons lager is stronger than I thought.

What was I saying?

like Andrew says above , its done to keep rim central in frame , so normally you will end up with spacers on non drive side of rear wheel and then the hub is moved across to the drive side by dishing the wheel......

simples find good lbs

Probably less - I think my LBS charged me about a tenner to re-dish the rear wheel.
