Ok. Here is the deal.
A good friend of mine has a 73 Le Tour which I gave him a year or so ago. HE LOVES THIS BIKE as he is 6'3 and loves a steel ride.
We have frequented the talk of him upgrading to a brifter system to give him more gears and get used to newer style gearing.
I am considering upgrading my Allez which is equipped with with Sora/Tiagra mix to a 2x10 like apex/rival. I am considering gifting him my old stuff which would include
Sora Shifters/Brake Levers
Tiagra Rear Derail.
Sora Front Derail.
700c wheels (1 of the few OEM pairs I have lying around)
We will have to get a new chain
I know that my crankset will not fit his, nor will it be too comfortable as it is a 172.5 and he probably needs 175. But, what would it take or what type of crank should I be looking for or bb to fit his 73 Le Tour. (It will need to be a Triple)
I am aware he will need new brakes as well. I do not believe my tektros coming off of the allez will fit his Le Tour. What type of brakes should I be looking for that will work with the older frame (currently pull caliper i believe) to 700c wheels/sora brake levers?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
