Oh good grief. This morning I get an email from Specialized that it's 130 unless it's a disc model. I'll measure the stinking thing when I get home tomorrow and post the result.

If they are 135s on a 132.5 frame or they are actually 130s, but if my measure point was off then I'd be ordering the wrong hub. Again, I quickly measured on my way out the door and didn't think...

They barely lasted two years. Cheap knock off hub. Probably cost me just as much to overhaul.

Pick a fitness bike you like. Put some Ergon GP3 grips on it. Maybe trim an inch off each end of the bar if the bars feel too wide or buy a 580 width on Amazon for $20. Most come with 620mm now and...

Couldn't tell you. Measured quickly with wheel on before I left the house and we're out of town. Ideally I'd order the hubs this weekend and have new wheels by Friday.

FX. Hands down. Keep it light and simple. If the tires seem too big, throw some 28s or 32s on there. I personally ride 28s on my Sirrus Sport.
