My friend gave me her 1990 Peugeot Nice about half a year ago. Now after riding the bike for a while, I feel like it could use some repairs and upgrades. I want to swap out the wheelset for something better. Before I put money down on a wheelset, I just want to clarify a few things to make sure whatever I buy will work.
I can't make out the brand, but I can see the rear wheel is a 6 speed cassette on a freehub. Currently, it's easier to find a 8/9 speed rear wheel.
So my question is, if I swap the 6spd rear for another 8/9 spd wheel, I have to swap out the shifters too, correct?
Does the brand matter here? Coz the entire drivetrain is Shimano right now. Does that mean I can't get a Campy rear?
