Lots of people read these threads and believe every word that is written. The majority of MTB 7spd hubs would have been 135mm by the 1990's. Just keeping it factual.
Being "Factual", he isn't running any other hub than STX Rc. so why would I be talking about anything else.....?
(after re-reading, NO other hub BUT the STX Rc parallax has been mentioned...
Continuing on with the FACTS.
The mid 90s STX RC parallax hubs have a 130mm width for the 7 SPD hub, Which is correct for this frame/build.
And the STX RC parallax hub which is 8spd runs a 135mm axle which is incorrect for this frame/build.
GIVEN you jumped on the band wagon ref Misinformation,
I thought it was fiting and PROPER to mention the correct axle length for this frame.
(Especially given the PM I received from the new owner of an Overburys which was sold here, and the trouble he was having trying to get the rear wheel in and out of his frame on his own, which was incorrectly using a 135 axle length.............And YES you are quite right, as im confident the hub in question in this instance was an "older" DX hub with the incorrect axle length for this bike being 135.)
