|If a shimano 600 wheelset is set up with a 7 speed, will one be able to change out and use an 8 speed?
|No - Different hub spacing (nm)||B2|

|Lots of 7-speed road bikes have 130mm rear triangle spacing.|

|I had the exact situation you describe - a 7 speed Ultegra 600 wheel with 130mm spacing. The problem I ran into when converting to 9 speed was not the overall width of the hub, but with the freehub assembly. Neither an 8 or 9 speed cassette would fit.
