    Rear spacing on 1998 Backwoods

    Does anyone know if the rear spacing for a 1998 GT Backwoods? I don't have the bike to measure it as I might be purchasing it on a Craigslist sale.

    The stock spec has it running 7 speeds, so I suppose it could be 130 mm, but some bikes of that time period ran 135, which is what I need for the wheelset I want to use with it.

    This is probably to late for this poor feller.

    But in case he should check back or someone else searching the web for this question?


    I have a 20" 1998 GT Backwoods and it's 135mm Folks


    (EDIT: 135mm on my 1994 18" Backwoods also) Smaller frame sizes may be narrower at the hide end?
