    Planet X Kaffenback Rear Spacing

    Does anyone know the rear spacing of these frames? The websites are really light on details. Also if anyone has one, what are your thoughts? Already have a race bike, this will not be a race bike. Thinking about building up an all-rounder with spare parts and possible disks in the future.

    Thanks

    Which version? I have the older (cream color) pre disc versions and have only ever used 130mm OLD hubs, originally Planet X wheels, then Shimano RS10, currently a Ultegra hub. The newer model, being disc capable has to accommodate 135mm OLD hubs, as the availability of 130mm OLD disc hubs is virtually non-existent, so would suspect the frame is designed at 132.5mm to go either way.

    Sorry, forgot that part. I'm looking at the new one. I'm guessing that it's 132.5 but I want to be sure. Their website is garbage for details.

    Having bought a planet x before, I feel you pain. I emailed 2 different people in regards to deraileurs and seat post size, and got two different answers. Website also says the uncle john is external headset, and it's not.

    Shiggy on mtbr forum works for planetx/Titus. He is who I asked for spec questions.
    I love my bike bike but a real pain to get parts ahead of time with 3 websites all with different/crappy info.
