been trolling on these boards for a while, and thought I had gathered enough info to know that my bike could easly be swtiched to a 9 speed from a stock 7 speed.
I have a 2010 Specialized Hardrock. I believe I saw posts that if your bike has plastic spacers in between the rear cogs then it should be an 8/9 speed hub with 7 speed on it. Mine does so I thought I was all good.
I picked up used SRAM X7 shifter set, X9 front derailleur, X9 rear derailleur, sram 990 cassette and 991 chain. I thought I was all good but pulled the rear stock 7 speed off and the 9 speed is just barely to thick to screw tight. Am I doing something wrong or do I need a new hub/rim?
I hope not cause I budgeted out on all the other gear I bought.
