Shimano-Campy Headset compatability...
Good news, everyone! I got rid of my big 58cm grey Trek!
I sold it to my good friend for $60, then bought a 49/50cm Trek fro $60. It fits so well! Woohoo for bikes that work! I don't have to jump into the saddle like... Like with horses. It's altogether an amazing thing! But the bike is also pretty gnarly.. Here's a photo, although it doesn't do the damage justice. It's really, really chipped and rusted and, well, just gross:
Anyway, I'm making this my first complete overhaul, I'm going to get it powdercoated, throw some new decals on it, (probably pretty non-Trek ones, would that be forgery..?) clear it and replace all the shimano stuff.
It's got a Shimano 600 headset, and I was wondering if it could be replaced with a Campy NR headset. Would that need to be English threaded?
Also, any suggestions, advice, parts offers, etc, would be apprecieated. I'm excited for this one!
