I'm hoping you guys can help me out with a few questions.
I just bought a late 80s italian road frame.
I would like it to be an 8-speed because that is what it was before.
I have a campy front and rear derailleur for it.
1) Do derailleurs function for any speed of bike or should I have a mechanic tell me what speed(s) it will work for?
2) I need to buy a wheelset. 700c. Ideally I'd like it to be an 8-speed bike. I'd like Mavic Ksyrium wheels but cannot find information on whether or not an 8-speed cassette is compatible with the wheels - would I have to get ones specialized for that?
3) Lastly, I'm looking to get a campy crankset. I see a lot advertised for 10-speeds. How do I know which cranks to get?
I've only built single speeds in the past and am new to the gear world. I apologize if these questions are too vague or asked often.
Any help would be wonderful!
