Hello all. My question today is: I have a schwinn hybrid bike from around 83 I think. Well the shifters and brakes are tired so I decided to strip the frame put a new brake and shifter system on it. and I'd also like to convert it to street tires. I understand that street tires are thinner than a hybrid or mtn bike tire and rim. so I'm sure I'd have to use A: different brake system, B: different gear system on the back tire as the rim would have to be changed out.
I want to know if this is possible or if I should just keep it as a hybrid or even fix it up and sell it to buy a road bike. I have a few hybrids already so I want a road bike now.
What do you ladies and gents say?
