For the sake of argument, suppose that money and feasibility do not apply to this situation.
I have a mid 80's Specialized Expedition, and I've been thinking of getting an alternate set of wheels for the bike. So, what are all the factors to consider? I know the space between the dropouts can be an issue. Getting a 5-speed freewheel isn't too hard, but what about hubs and rims and spokes? Is there a single factor (or two) to focus on which will determine the parameters for the subsequent components?
Whether I do this or not, I just want to know exactly why I should or shouldn't do it.
Edit: sorry, this might not have been the best forum
