I have a Motobecane frameset which has the fixed cup/adjustable cups installed but that's all--with the 35x1 French threading. So do I have to shop around to find compatible "French" axle, bearings, etc. or will some generic components work? I am planning to use it with two chain rings, as an around town road bike. Thanks for any advice. George
Earlier I posted this in the mechanics section and someone suggested I also ask here. It's a Super Mirage that had a stem mounted shifter--probably from the 70s or 80s.
