Hub spacing question?(3 posts)

Hub spacing question?BAC

Hello. I have a 135mm Hugi rear hub. Does anyone know if it will fit the rear spacing on a cross from? Also, it is an 8spd from around '96-Ihave an 8spd Shimano cassette on it now. Will a 9spd Ultegra cassette work on it? Thanks

A 9 speed cassette will fit on and 8 speed hub. You should not have any problems with this.

road spacing is 130.... whether it fits depends on frame. Surly cross check, for example, is 132.5 designed to fit either. You can "cold set" a steel frame (pull the dropouts apart and stick the wheel in there and it eventually resets to the wider spacing), but this isn't recommended for alu frames.
