    Nope!

    "Normal" rear dropout spacing is:
    * 7sp road = 126mm
    * 8/9sp road = 130mm
    * 7sp MTB/touring = 130mm
    * 8sp MTB/touring = 135mm
    * tandem = 135mm, 140mm, 145mm or 160mm

    110mm (children's and BMX bikes) to 160mm (some tandems). Many steel frames can be cold-set (bent)
    to different dimensions.

    Yes. It is measured from the one inside faces to the other on all bicycles. No. That distance varies
    from 110mm to 160mm

    Good list. 10 speed road is also 130 mm.
