Most likely a Cannondale bike, as their mtb team was sponsored by Volvo. Could be a roadie an mtb racer owned (my neighbor raced for Cannondale and they gave him road bikes too), or it could have just been someone who liked the team and bought the stickers. Ask your neighbor if he knows.
Anyway, upgrading from 7 speed is a little tricky because the spacing needs to be wider for the 8, 9, and 10 speed setups with the nicer shifters on the brake levers. If it's a Cannondale, it's an aluminum frame and I don't recommend spreading that to accomodate larger axles.
