You can buy a longer axle , shimano uses a 10x1, and add some left end spacers .
If the shop is going to do a cold set for alignment , go with the 135.
[though nothing wrong with 130].
the same hub is dished less with the longer axle,
after you re center the rim between the new longer axle ends
frames went from 126 to 130 to add the 8th cog.
thereafter the engineers crammed in more by thinning out the spaces and chain.
7 was a thinning to ad 1 cog to standard 6, .. 8 was just adding 1 cog
without narrowing the chain and spacing of the 7 speed ..
