The rear spacing is 130mm so i guess i could use an 8 speed road hub and a cassette spacer. That would be interesting.
It would be easy enough to "cold set" the rear end so that the its 135mm: http://sheldonbrown.com/frame-spacing.html
As it's only 130mm at the rear and you say it's early 90s, I wonder if should have shorter, non suspension corrected forks with a 390mm axle to crown length.
Nice frame, definately a bit more interesting than a Kilauea in my opinion.
Thanks for taking the time to post the link... i've cold set many frames, but never anything of this quality. While the correct parts are obtainable i'll always go down that route.
The frame was originally specced with an early Rockshox fork. Having said that i do think the project twos are a little longer. For the 1/2 degree difference it makes i dont mind.
