i've got a wonderful steel mid 1990s Specialized mountain frame that is set up as a singlespeed right now. i'd love to make it a singly 'cross bike to add to my stable (1984 Trek 410cx, 2002 K2 Enemy, 2006 Redline Conquest, ... and some frames haha) and use it to commute and do some rail-trail stuff.
question is, i want to run 700cs (or 27s....) on it, but i cant find any information on running 700cs on a 26" mountain frame. what type of brakes would be available for this conversion? i know it would need to be longer arms, maybe even V-brakes.... i know of and am not willing/wanting to run 650s.
any suggestions would be greatly apprecaited!! :thumbup:
and an old pic of my 1984 Trek for fun :
