i bought an older, late 80s bianchi to completely rebuild, and i'm new at the technical part of bike mechanics so i'll post questions in here...pics to come soon.
the rear wheel is a freewheel, but i'm wondering...is it possible to upgrade to a freehub? or am i better off just getting a new wheelset?
i'm also thinking that as long as i match the right bottom bracket set (ISIS, octalink, or square tapered) with the appropriate crankset, and that it fits into the 70 mm bottom bracket, no worries, right?
i'm gonna paint this bad boy...where do i get the right kind of paint/finish, or does it matter?
any info would be helpful...everyone here at local bike shops laugh in my face just cause i'm a chick or something.
