It's a 10 speed, mid 80s Raleigh, can I put a 9 speed cassette on it? Would this require a new hub? I'd like to put a set of index shifters on it, rather than the downtubes...is it possible? What combination of derailuers/shifters, etc...
Or would I be better off just upgrading the derailuer and keeping the friction shifting?
I really want to get rid of the pastic simplex:
Would something like this work? http://cgi.ebay.com/CAMPAGNOLO-ROAD-...742.m153.l1262
