I'm riding a vintage bike with suntour cyclone derailleurs and friction downtube shifters
I have toured on it, but want to make some changes.
first off, I have two rings on the crank: 52 and 42, I believe. This makes climbing big, big, steep hills with gear harder than it needs to be. I'd like to put on a three ring crank.
anyone know if I will have to change my front derailleur to accomodate for this change?
Also, I'm riding on a six speed freewheel, and was wondering if anyone who has ridden on similar and upgraded to casette thought it was well worth it. My frame is steel, so it can potentially be spread back there.
