    kelly rear hub spacing

    hi there, anyone know what the rear hub spacing is on a kelly cyclocross (i think she's a 2002) - 130, 132.5 or 135? thinking of building one up; i've a got a pair of ck hubs, and i guess i could bend the frame but i'd rather not.

    Kelly typically uses 135mm spacing (they spec MTB hubs like LX, XT, XTR on their complete bikes).

    Hmm, Chris has been very responsive to my emails. He moved the shop last winter so you may have been lost in the reorganization. He powdercoats so there's no such thing as "paint". I get the closest nail polish color or model paint for chips. He will repowder.

    2004 frames are 135 spacing but he carefully squeezed my frame in his arms and reset to 130. It wasn't that hard and everything is true.

    depending on what SIZE your bike is.. meaning the length of of your stays.. squeezing it to 130 isn't going to throw off too much.

    i have the 53/54 and i did it for a temporary fix until i got a new cassette to fit my xt hubs.
