New gruppo on an older Italian frame
I recently happened upon the frame referenced in this thread:
Paletti ID help?
(no slagging on my seat angle: I was breaking in the Brooks and I always think they feel better for the first few hundred miles when set like that)
After riding it fixed for a bit now, I think it's telling me that it wants to have gears. It was originally set up with Super Record cica 1984. I am inclined to grab one of these campy gruppo/wheelsets sets here:
Will the group please share it's collective wisdom as to what sort of things could go wrong in building the bike up with that (much newer) group? I've never done a conversion like this, and I'd like to avoid buying things that won't work.
Rear dropout spacing?
Will the new campy bb style work on older frames?
Are brazed derailleur hangers a standard size?
I am sure there are a zillion other things I am not thinking of. I appreciate your advice!
