i'd suggest using punctuated sentences and spell check.

Good advice.

Having said that, if I take yer meaning, you've got a schwinn crossfit and you want to make it sort of cyclocrossy. Go for it. I'm riding around on a trek 700 which is very similar to the crossfit, I put drops on it, bar end shifters, etc., and it's a decent ride. What you replace is up to you and how much money you want to spend. Those 700c hybrids from the 90s make good cyclocross conversions in general.

sorry for the poor grammer and spelling im using an ipod touch. that and i didnt have what most would call a proper education. i guess some kids they let slide through the system. having said that i do apprecate all the help that i have been getting from all the people on this site. the bike shop i work at is more focased on comfert bikes and crusiers and cant help me out to much w/ my cross project. but it nice because i have a large selection of desent used bikes and parts at hand
