So, I have been discussing my bicycling future in the introductions section with East Hill, and I reached the limit of her expertise. Can anyone help me out here?
I am looking to set this frame up for road riding, touring, and recreation. I ride motorcycles as my primary hobby, and the bicycle is used to maintain a level of endurance and stamina I need on the racetrack w/ the motorcycle.
I know for a fact it needs cranks, derailleur, fixed front fork, pedals and shifters. What are some decent, but not outrageous components that I can refit this frame with. I do not want to break the bank, but it should be dependable, and not in the shop all the time. More specifically about the forks and gearing:
What measurements do I need to replace the front suspension fork with a fixed one, and where do I find them? Should I replace the wheels with 700c? What do you recommend for gearing, as this bike will not see off road ever again? Thanks very much for all your help. I have attached the link to the new introductions section that provides pictures and details about the bike.
