A bike I own measures exactly 130mm between the inside of the dropouts. I have had 8 speed hubs before, which I thought were 135mm. Before I order the wrong size hub for a fixed conversion, can anyone help with my confusion?

    yours are 130 from your measurements. thats one way to measure them, its really just the frame width insides which equals the locknut outer edge width.
