Hope everyone's having/ had a good day!
Right, I’m looking at doing 3 things to a bike and I’ll start by briefly describing the bike.
It’s an old Raleigh Shadow, 10 speed with the gear levers on the frame (photo attached of the bike). [IMG]file:///C:/Users/kat/Desktop/the%20Raleigh%20Shadow.jpg[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/Users/kat/Desktop/the%20Raleigh%20Shadow.jpg[/IMG][quote]
I would like to convert it from frame allocated gear shifters to the brake lever/thumb gear change combi's? Do you think it’s possible and if so, how could it be done?
Is it possible to relocate the rear brake assembly (even if that means buying a particular kind of brake set up to accomplish it) to the lower area next to the chainwheel and Front Derailer?? What do I need to consider, cable tension, space etc
And last question:
Is it possible to swap the normal bent/ angled front forks associated with older road/race bike's to a more modern style straighter style forks?
Really hope you can shed some ideas or light on the subject’s, what do you think?
