    Quick question on frame/freehub fit.

    I apologize in advance because I have not researched but the guy who's selling the bike wants an answer now--

    The bike is a litespeed that is all set up with 9-speed Dura-ace components. Double crankset.

    Will my 10-speed 105 components (with triple crankset) fit ok? I guess I'm asking if the freehub is wider on a 10-speed, such that the 10-speed-equipped wheel would not fit the frame properly? Chain line and other exotic considerations ?

    Thanks!

    Your 10 speed rear should be fine as 9 and 10 speed shimano hubs are both 130mm spaced.

    triple crankset will be fine too

    Why would you want to go from Dura ace to 105?
    If it looks like the $3000 bikes but costs less than a decent helmet, it probably isn't a wise investment.
