Without specifically checking the two frames, but essentially all components
should swap over without difficulty. FD, if clamp on might be a problem
depending on the respective frames down tubes. If 'brazeon' then no problem.
I would carefully eyeball the der cables where they are inside the shifters as
most der cables fail where they are wrapped around the shifter barrel inside
the shifter and this would be a good time to look at them or even replace if
they are a few years old. Special tooling is limited to BB wrenches and
cassette R&R tools and crank pullers. Everything else is standard wrench/allen
tools and screwdrivers. www.parktool.com
has a repair section that covers
this and www.sheldonbrown.com
also covers this albeit in a less targeted
fashion. It is easy 2-4 hour job depending on how fastidious you are about
tear down and cleaning of parts. Good opportunity to totally clean and
wax the frame also. Be aware most parts are best installed with grease on
threads (most of the stuff you are swapping) but a few parts need thread
lockers (mostly on derailleur subassemblies). Depending on the chain you may
need a chain breaker.
