Time for upgrades. I have a 1992 7 spd Shimano Ultegra hub. The frame is a 1990 Cannondale 3.0 Series.
Can I get an 8spd on this hub?
What about the frame? Is it possible to get an 8/9 speed wheel/drivetrain in the rear triangle?

8 speeds won't fit on a seven speed hub. Rear dropout spacing needs to be 130mm for 8/9 speed stuff, and AL does not like to be bent.
