Shimano RSX freehub - 7 speed to 8 speed?
I used the search and couldn't find this question so I'll ask.
I have a '96 Mongoose Omega touring bike equipped with Shimano RSX components. It is 3 x 7 speed, originally using STI shifters. I swapped those out for 8 speed Ultegra bar ends (I'm using them in friction mode with the 7 speed ... works fine) I have an 8 speed cassette that I tried to install to upgrade to 8. I found that the 7 speed freehub would not accommodate the 8 speed cassette (freehub is too narrow) I know that later on RSX came in 8 speed. Does anyone know if I can change to an 8 speed freehub on this hub?
