No spreading as such, just dropped the wheel in and there was a slight rub with the cassette and the RD hanger (this is a 92 CX frame). Just needed a quick file down on the inside of the RD hanger and all was good.
They really are a unique riding bike, very soft but in a subtle way not bouncing you all over the place.
I find it's a great combo for commutes and light trail/road trips. I may look though for a carbon 1 inch threaded fork with canti bosses
as the cantis tend to give a bit of a fork shudder under hard braking with the Alu fork.
