    Wheel Compatibility

    I was wondering if new 700c rear wheels are compatible on old 10 speed bikes. I am possibly going to buy a bike from a friend with a bad back wheel and swap in a 700c wheelset, that I think is from a multispeed Windsor. I am not 100% certain what it is right now, but I'll find out. I think the main concern are the gears and derailleur. I noticed that newer bike gears seem smaller and closer together compared to old bikes from the 80s.

    Brake reach is your main concern, unless you're going modern indexed with the switch.
