Hi everyone, this is my first time post and I'm pretty new to cycling. That'll probably be pretty obvious.
I just brought an old, cheap steel frame bike, but I noticed that the bottom bracket, cassette and brakes were all a little worn so I brought a new groupset online. I was hoping not to spend too much and it seemed reasonably priced, but what I didn't realize was that the set had a nine speed cassette. So I had to buy new wheels.
Than I realized that the groupset didnt come with shifters and my shifters were for a six speed bike. The frame doesnt have brazed mounts. Shifters incorporated into the brakes look pretty expensive and I'm hoping for the cheapest way out here. preferably without resorting to friction shifters. Any ideas?
