    Rear axle spacing on LS Appalachian

    I have been assuming that the spacing of the rear axle on the Litespeed Appalachian/ Blue Ridge frames was 132.5 mm since I have seen both XT and Ultegra hubs used with those frames. Does anyone know for sure? Was the spec constant across model years or did it change for different years?

    (I just bought a 2000 Blue Ridge frame and discovered that they didn't weld rear brake housing stops for that model year. Now I am questioning whether other changes were made.)

    My 2000 LS catalogue doesn't say, but both those frames came with road hubs and V-brakes.

    You may be able to fit a dangling cable stop?hangar from the seat binder. That was a popular attachment point for small mountain bikes with canti's.
