I commute on a Trek 2000 in Portland and the road grit is wearing out the drive train consistently. So I just bought an old Bianchi 10-speed, planning to ride it when it's wet out. Of course I didn't think about the fact that the Bianchi won't stop very well in the rain on its steel rims.
Did I blow it? Is it practical to put aluminum rims on the Bianchi so it will stop in the rain?
