    Hello

    Hi guys, I'm from Wales in the UK, and I recently switched from riding a mountain bike to a classic steel 1987 Raleigh Equipe (which I spent 6 months renovating after rescuing it from my Dad's shed).
    It now looks really cool and runs very smoothly but I just can't get my head round friction shifting!
    I'd like to upgrade to index shifting. Can anyone tell me which thread to post the question in!?

    Thanks!

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.
    The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum can help. Also the Bike Mechanics forum.
    My bikes: 2001 Litespeed Tuscany---
    2013 Cannondale CAAD 10 2 "Racing Edition"--The bike shop owner said it's toast. R.I.P.
    2014 or 2015 CAAD 10 3 coming soon. Decision time.
