I currently have a 7 speed drivetrain. If I buy a new wheelset with a 8/9 speed hub, can I use spacers to make the 7 speed cassette fit? The frame is spaced at 130mm so there's no problem there.

Sorry if this has been asked a million times. I search the archives and could not find anything.

You need one spacer - something like 4 or 5mm - it goes between the cassette and the hub body - your LBS should have them.
