I like to tinker and now love to bike. I would like to take all of the Dura Ace components off of a 650 carbon bike and put them on a 700 steel (actually, 27" vintage). I plan to sell the carbon frame and fork and use the money to buy a nice wheel set and carbon fork for the build. But I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. A couple questions -
1. I guess I need to let my bike shop remove the old cranks? I got as far as I could.
2. Will components on a 650 work on a 700? I assume I'll need a longer chain?
3. Anything else I should be aware of?
I can't spend over a $1000 on a nice bike yet. I've commuted on a hybrid 18 miles a day for about 300 miles this fall and had a blast. Now I'm looking to build a ligher, faster bike that actually fits me. Thanks for the help.
