    Why bother with a new headset? I would think if the old one worked, just leave it alone (after repacking).

    They have quill stems with modern handlebar attachments. That may make more sense than...

    I half-heartedly attempted a mid five with FFG this morning and failed. As of now, I have yet to successfully execute a high, mid, low five with a forum member without crashing.

    You might have to redish the wheel if the cog is on the opposite side of the freewheel (if I understand you correctly). For my conversion, it was easiest to just find a used wheelset on...

    FG/SS being faster up short hills is mainly psychological--you realize that you don't have the option of downshifting and so you just "man up" in an effort to maintain cadence.

    What's a chain guard? Is that some overpriced doohickey the bicycle industry is forcing on us, sorta like brifters?

    If it's a steel frame, it don't matter. If you had a 6 or 7 speed freewheel, it's 126. If 5 speed, it's 120.

    If your bottom bracket spins OK, don't do anything and slap on a new crank if you are...

    That is a no-brainer. Although clearly, previous model components (10 speed 105), I would expect the second bike to cost a minimum of $700. I can't tell if it has rear rack mounts. (And you would...
