130mm FH-1055?

Did shimano ever make a 130mm OLN FH-1055 hub, or were they all 126mm?

I believe they were all 126 as the freehub bodies were for 7-speed cassettes. If you found a 130 mm spaced one it was probably redone by a previous owner either with a longer axle and spacer or a spacer and just recentering the OEM axle.

I've never seen it myself. I'm about to pull the trigger on a wheelset and the seller doesn't know what an OLN measurement is. Thanks for the input, my good sir.

Glad to help. I had a set of these hubs as factory equipment on my 7-speed '92 Trek 1420 and they were smooth and durable like almost all Shimano hubs. If 126 OLD suits your needs, they should be fine.

If you need 130 for an 8sp or higher you can replace the freehub with an 8sp and redish the wheel. 105 FH-1056 8 speed Freehub Body Cassette Freehub Body Shimano

OTOH, if you want 7-speed with 130mm OLN, replace the axle and put an extra 5mm spacer on the left side. Redish the wheel and you're golden.

Yes, I eventually did that when I converted my 1420 to 8-speed. The frame was spaced 128 so either 126 or 130 fit with no problems.

However, I don't think the OP is interested in the conversion, he just wanted to know if the FH-1055 is normally 126 as the seller of the wheels he is considering buying seems clueless.

As mentioned you can easily add or subtract spacers on the left side to get to your desired O.L.D.

Or put on a different freehub and convert it to 8/9/10 speed as well.

I'm pretty sure, but not positive that all were 126 mm OLD. There were some Shimano 7S 130 mm OLD hubs in the mid '90s, RSX being one so there is a slight possibility of a 130 mm 1055.

or you can swap in a longer axle (they are available), with washers, and make 130mmish OLD one. if that's what you want. never really stated your intent, not that that is necessary.

i cut a 126mm one down to 120mm. that's one nice thing about oldschool threaded axle hubs. worked fine.

i'm now in the process of looking for an old dura-ace rear 8-speed (7700?) to cut down to 126mm and swap in a hyperglide 7-speed freehub.

8S is 7400, 9S is 7700.

You can convert a 126 mm hub to 130 mm without changing the axle. Add a 4 mm spacer to the non-drive side, recenter the axle and redish the rim. A 126 mm axle is 137 mm long and in the OEM hub has 5.5 mm sticking out beyond each locknut. Respacing to 130 mm still leaves 3.5 mm of axle protruding from each end and that's plenty.

I thought that the 1056 has an 8S free hub while the 1055 has a 7S free hub?

+1, You can replace the axle, add a spacer on the left end, and build a wheel around it ..

I have 2 bikes (with freewheel hubs) I did that to , works fine .. dish reduced .. a bit too ..

Yes, 8-speed (and above) are 130 mm while 7-speed is 126 mm. So the 1055 would have been 7-speed and 1056 would be 8-speed.

It's not nearly that simple. A 7700 hub will indeed work with 9S, but it also works perfectly with 8 and 10 speed.

7400 was around for a LONG time, going back to 6-speed thread-on freewheels. If I'm not mistaken only the 7403 rear hub was 8-speed Hyperglide (so also compatible with 9 and 10 speed.)

my post mentioned that i wanted to put a 7 speed hyperglide freehub on the dura-ace hub. you, know, the one that attaches via a fancy 11mm hex bolt. 7400 dura-ace has a proprietary THREADED freehub attachment design. 7700 DA and later all use the same 11mm hex bolt attachment mechanism.

as per post above. i'll look into the possibility that 7403 is hyperglide with modern 11mm attachment method, if so, i could use it. and would prefer it.

edit: looked into it... Velobase says, 7400 series durace hubs DO NOT use a 11mm hex bolt to attach the freehub. so i guess that's out.

my apologies. end of hijack.

Right. What I'm referring to is the possibility of a 1055 with it's 7S free hub, configured for 130 mm OLD.

True, either hub will support 7S (with a spacer) and 8S-10S cassettes. I took it as looking for a period correct hub.

Well, for that matter I used to own an '92 or '93 Trek 7000 MTB that came OEM with an LX freehub spaced 135 mm with a 7-speed body so I guess any combination is possible.

I've seen more than one 7-speed Shimano rear hub set up new for 130 dropout spacing. I think this was pretty common just before 8-speed hit the market. I converted a 7-speed RSX Giant to 9-speed for a friend. It was definitely 130 mm OLD when new.

Correct, except it's actually a 10mm bolt. But they might have made a 7400 7-speed Hyperglide Dura Ace hub.

I have a 7400 7-speed Uniglide hub, but that probably wouldn't do you any good. I have the cassette to go with, but once you wear it out, pickings get slim. Especially for the last cog which is threaded to a smaller Dura-Ace-specific size.
