New to cycling.
I currently have the following rear wheel:
700c Mavic MA40. Shimano 600 hub. 7sp hyperglide cassette. I believe its 126mm.
I want to convert the wheel to 8sp but not sure how that works. Can i just get a compatible 130mm hub and keep the wheels? Or do i need to buy a whole back wheel/hub? What hub should i look for that is compatible with Shimano 600 parts (except for shifters which are 8sp Shimano Sora)?
Im aware of the 126/130mm spacing issues and the shifter upgrade which i have taken care of already. Just dont understand if wheel/spokes can take any size hub.
Thanks in advance!
