I have a spare wheelset lying around. It has a Campy cassette body but from what I've read, both Shimano and Campy shifters work well enough with Campy 9 speed cassettes.
So I was thinking - which would be cheaper?
a) Build a cheap 9 speed commuter with the wheelset I have already. I would need a frame, components, etc. Basically everything but the wheels.
b) Buy a complete commuter bike? I'm looking for something with gears. I find myself shifting frequently when commuting. It just makes things faster. Any recs for cheap commuter bikes? I like drop bars too btw; I used to ride a flat-bar bike and after going to drop bars I will never go back.
