Sta-Tru Quick Release Rear Wheel (Black) (700) (5-8 Speed Freewheel) (32 Spokes)
Although this wheel is described as fitting 5-speed through 8-speed rear spacing, there is a complication. It comes with a spacer for the axle to account for the difference between the dropout distance for 5 speed and 8 speed. With the spacer in it fits 8 speed, with it removed 5 and 6 speed. (I can't remember where 7 speeds fit in this. That will allow the wheel to be placed in the dropouts successful for both types of gear set-up. However, the wheel seems to be dished for 8-speed bikes. So if you have a 5 or 6 speed, the wheel will not be centered in the dropouts. It certainly doesn't warrant re-dishing the wheel nor attempting to change the spacing between the dropouts. Just a warning about this. I think it should appear in the write-up. I have a friend who purchased this wheel and is riding with a rear wheel that doesn't exactly follow the line of the front wheel.
