I don't know if it's an option, but the Sun XCD cassette hub with the "short" cassette body might make a cool rear wheel: http://sunxcd.net/hubs/
My Vitus 979 seems to have a rear spacing of 114 mm. I believe it should be at least 126 mm. Could years in storage cause the rear dropouts to converge? Or is that normal and I just need to flex it out to drop a wheel in? Thanks.
