Hey all. I'm on the brink of buying a 1983 Trek 720 bicycle. I know this is a gorgeous bike, but there is one thing tripping me up. The original Dia Compe GC960 Canti brakes were set up to work with the stock 27" wheels. I want to put a set of 700c wheels on this bike, but I have heard rumors that this might be a huge problem. Has anybody out there actually ever tried this on this bike? I'm not sure if it will be possible to adjust the stock cantis enough to reach the 700c rim or if canti brakes are made that have enough adjustment to make them work.
I don't think I can buy the bike if I can't put 700c wheels on it, but I would love to turn it into a vintage touring masterpiece if I can.
Any advice / experience on this subject out there?
