Bike frame swap possible? Novara Strada parts to Surly crosscheck
I see a Novara Strada
2006 version on sale. It has Shimano 105 components. It is a good deal but I want a Surley Crosscheck
bike. So I am thinking I could buy the Strada anyway and swap the components to the Crosscheck and sell the the Strada frame.
Noted differences between the 2006 and 2007:
fork is aluminum on 2006
brakes are also Shimano 105
The crank/bottom bracket is a FSA Gossamer Mega Exo Triple
. Will this fit in the Crosscheck?
The headset is Ritchey Logic Zero Comp (based on 2007 spec) for 1 1/8 inch threadless. It seams to match the Crosscheck.
Will the swap work? Thanks for the help. Don't know what specific things I should check for this swap.
Edit: I plan on commuting with this bike if that helps.
