I think the 122mm width was to accomodate the "Ultra 6" Suntour freewheels. I don't recal a 125mm hub width, and I can't think of a reason for one. It sounds like this frame is just a bit off in alignment. But 1mm isn't enough to bother with. Just put a 126 hub in it.

> Hi all,
> I know Campy NR/SR rear hubs have been available in 120mm,122mm,126mm widths, but were they ever made in 125mm? I recently snagged a nice Harry Quinn frame the owner said had a reardropout width of 125mm, and it does. I know I'll be able to make a 126mm hub work, but this 125 measurent is new to me. If there are 125mm hubs & one of ya'll have one in your secret horde of stuff you would be willing to sell, please let me know. Thanks, Greg Brooks,Ridgetop,TN
> P.S. Why were there so many close widths anyway? I realize going from 5 to 6 to 7 cog freewheels requires greater widths. But 120,122,125,126,128,130 is a lot of variation.
