RSX Rear Hub Width(4 posts)

I have a 7 speed RSX rear wheel that came stock on a bike in 1995. Does anyone know if the spacing on the hub is 130mm? or is it smaller? (I don't have anything that will measure it accurately.)

I'm betting that a 1995 bike would have had a 130mm over locknut dimension. The easiest way is to measure the distance between the dropouts of the bike that it came on.

Assuming it's not 130mm, but 126, would it do any damage if I used it on a steel frame that is spaced for 130mm?

Why you can't measure the width is something of a mystery, but if it is a steel frame, you would have no problem if you inserted a 130mm hub in a 126mm spacing steel frame.
