Hub Spacing, 1988 Peugeot

Where would I find the hub spacing for a 1988 Peugeot Bordeaux? I have a friend giving me a rim and I need to find a hub to buy to build a fixed rear wheel.

hmm, What hubs work to get a new wheel built? Will a 130mm hub work? The rim has 32 holes. I just found a red fixie flip hub that was 130. I'm on a tight budget so I am going to be a little picky if expensive ones are suggested.

Most track hubs are spaced at 120mm. It shouldn't be a problem to add 3mm spacer to each side to fit your 126mm spaced frame. Just make sure there's enough axle to engage dropouts and accept your nuts.

Knoregs plan seems that it may be better. What do you say Jim? (You seem like the local BF Peug pro.)

Yes, just spread the dropouts a tiny bit when inserting the wheel.

Homebrew-I read a post where someone did that and it was fine until they put a lot of pressure on it. Then the frame flexed a bit and the wheel touched the side. I guess if you mess with the geometry that's what happens. I'm looking up 126mm hubs. Or maybe the 120s with spacers would be okay.

Jim-Assuming you will check this, what is the spacing on the front hub? Also 126mm?

Edit: Okay, I measured. More like 3.75 inches or 95 mm. Sound right to anyone?

I think many people have followed both ways of doing things, and been fine.

And try reading up on this a bit, hey?

As much as I dont want ot post in this thread I'll tell you that the front is 100mm and the back is 126. As far as converting it to a fixie/SS....going with 120mm hub is your best option.

A 126 or 130 fixied gear/SS is only viable if the rear hub has an extremely wide ditance between the flanges.

I've read that link and seen what people are saying. I found a fixed wheel built on a 120 rear hub that is able to be spaced to 126, so that problem is solved. And for the front, I have a wheel that is nice and straight with a long axle but it's pretty narrow. I think 3 mm spacers on each side of that one will take up the space. I'm going to take it to my LBS and have them take a look at it.
