|10 speed rear dropout spacing||ACH|

|What is the rear dropout spread for Campy 10 sp.? Is it the same as 8/9 sp.? I haven't bought a new bike since 88 so I'm clueless on this. Thanks.|

|Dropout spacings come in 3 different distances:
120 mm (old, old 5-speed and ultra-6's)
126 mm (most 6-speed, and all 7-speed. Common from early 80's to early 90's)
130 mm (all 8,9, and 10 cog rears).
additionally, there is 135 mm (common MTB), and some tandems with even greater spacing.

|Some early 90's seven speeds had 130 mm spacing. I had a Bridgestone RB-2 with that set up, and have heard of a bunch of others, though I can't name 'em right now.

|Measure your dropout space, if you have 126mm and your frame is steel, you should be OK. I have Campy 10spd chorus on my frame, and it's 126mm, no problems whatsoever.|| |
