I'm about to pull the trigger on a Colnago Mexico. The seller has a "master frame builder" that will "cold" expand the rear spacing to 130mm. He's done it many times before.

If I'm planning on using modern parts, I have Krysium SLR wheels, probably will do Campy Chorus...

Should I have the back taken out to 130mm?

Yes. It is no big deal. I have done it myself to an old steel frame.

When you have the frame, I'd still strongly suggest checking the RD hanger alignment with a proper tool.
