Okay I hope to get my question answered to the highest knowledge or knowing.
say i want to upgrade a vintage road bike wheelset to 700c. Freewheel has 6 cogs :/
understanding I'll need a drop bolt for brakes so no need to tell me that. frame would be 126mm in diameter where the rear wheel goes and I will have to stretch it but being an aluminum bike I can't do that right????
I want thicker rims. I know 27" are stronger with the 36 spokes they have but I just got tired of the rims and their too heavy. Mavic stickers have disintegrated so no point in showing off the vintage wheelet. If I can't upgrade freewheel to modern cassette meaning 27" to 700c wheelset. Can I still use the 36 spoke hub off the 27" rear wheel and isntall that on a 700c rim that has 36 spokes That way the only thing that Id have to do is tweak with the brakes and thats it and keep the old freewheel/hub? I wanted to also change the drive train to all shimano 105. current drive train on this puppy is a suntour 3000 on a relaigh technium. I'll post pics of my bike if i find my camera and if not ill just post some online photos that are identical to this situation.
these are the rims i want to put on the old freewheel hub from the 27 inch wheel
the rim is a 700c
