Hub spacing for Alfine hubs?
I have a 1998-era Cannondale frame. It lived most of its life with 9-speed Ultegra, so it has 130mm spacing.
It's currently configured as a single-speed, but I don't use it that much. I was thinking of converting it to use the Alfine 8-speed internal hub so I could use it as a yucky-weather commuter. I saw on the Harris Cyclery page a pre-built Alfine hub wheel
, but the description states that the wheel has 132mm spacing.
132? I never heard of 132, so I'm half thinking that's a typo. Even so, it's only 1mm on each side from what I currently have, but before I take the plunge, I wanted to make sure that this is going to work. Any reasons why it wouldn't work?
