    Swapping parts to new bike

    Pardon my ignorance...

    I've got a new frame arriving in the next day or so...will slooowly build it up with new parts, but in the meantime I (well, technically going to have a LBS do it) plan on transfering everything...stem, handlebar, gruppo, saddle, wheels.

    Couple questions:
    1) the bottom bracket should be able to be used, right?

    2) Does the spacing of the dropouts dictate whether or not you can run a 9sp or 10sp cassette? My current rear wheel is a 9spd, and when I get around to getting a new wheelset, will plan on a 10spd...curious if both wheels will work

    Assuming the same threading (most likely both English).

    2) Does the spacing of the dropouts dictate whether or not you can run a 9sp or 10sp cassette? My current rear wheel is a 9spd, and when I get around to getting a new wheelset, will plan on a 10spd...curious if both wheels will work
    A 9 speed hub will work with a 10 speed cassette, though you'll need a super slim spacer for the 10.
