Fixing up my Milano
So I just bought a Bianchi Milano, an older black one. It has a Nexus 7 with a drum brake on it now and the LBS has rebuilt it within the past two years but it's shot. I would really like to do a fix/free setup on it but if I do free wheel, I want a rear brake and there aren't any mounts. My question: Anyone out there ever welded brake mounts to a frame/ is there any recomended literature on the matter? I have some limited experience welding as well as limited access to equipment, my dad is an auto mechanic. I am looking to put v-brakes on the bike or possibly cantilever.
