Help with Matching Drivetrain please!?!

I have Velocity Glider wheels
http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...ype=&estoreid=

with a Sora rear derailleur <triple version>

Would a Shimano HG50 8Speed Cassette and an SRAM PC48 chain be correct choices for this?

Any other suggestions?

I also want flat-bar shifters... I am beginning to see that the mountain shifters are not necessarily compatible with the road derailleurs.

Anyon matched any of these successfully?

If you can find the Shimano SL-R440-8 shifter set, these are Sora shifters for flat bars. Should jive with your Sora front derailleur. Another option would be a Shimano mountain FD that can handle large chainrings, if you can find one. Then you could use Shimano mountain STI shifters. I believe the top-swing XTR's have a more gradual arc to their cage to handle bigger rings. Since you haven't really explained what you're building, you might want to elaborate.

The Sachs chain and HG50 cassette will be ok with eachother and with your wheels.

Thanks. That flatbar unit is pricey, so far as I have seen. I'll keep looking.

I am updating a 1973 Schwinn Speedster to be a garage sale hopper/utility bike.

Shimano MTBshifters are comaptible woth shimano road rear derailers. There are issues with mixing shimano mtb/road ,shifters /front derailers.
