I have an older Nishiki that needs a freewheel. It is currently a 10 speed with friction shifting.
The replacements I am seeing are 6 or 7 rings. Can I put this on my current wheel as is? Seems like it will have to be wider and therefore will at least change the dish.
In a related question, I may need new wheels altogether for this bike, can I use a cassette instead of a freewheel? I am getting conflicting answers from LBS guys.
thanks in advance,
