Here is my purchase today -- a 1996 or 1998 Scott Waimea. This is the seller's picture.
Yes, I know, it is missing some parts.
I want to get the right components for it, however, this is going to be a fun project and not another money pit.
It is an 8-speed and appears to have originally been outfitted with Shimano 105.
Please help me select components.
Will 9-speed bar ends and rear derailleur work with the 8-speed cassette?
What crank should I get and what length should it be?
The cassette is 12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21. What size chain rings would be appropriate.
Thanks as always,
