been having a play with this

this is it current configuration

I need a new rear wheel, but, am struggling to find one with 130mm OLN (Hub Width)? (26")

also, what is the largest cassette I can use with this wheel? (currently 6 speed but would like to increase it 7/8?)

would like to go single chainring, so more at rear would benefit.

That's the first time I've seen a 4 ring crank setup :? Didn't know they existed

That is most definitely a freewheel and anything larger than 6 will just break the axle as so often happens with the cheaper wheels as the bearings are further in.

try:
