Kona Jake the Snake Rear Hub Size

Does anyone know what the rear hub size is on the 09 Kona Jake the Snake? I'm looking at building up a frame and wanted to know if I need a 135 hub or if a 130 would work.

Thanks everyone!

I have an 05 Major Jake. It is definitely wider than 130 road hubs but it works with road hubs no problem. I just squeeze the stays together a little bit. The 09 JTS is spec'd with Mavic Asksuims so it is sold with 130 spaced hubs. I think my MJ will run 130 or 135's.
