What are your vintage conversions weighing in at?
I am relatively new to cycling, and my first bike was a Motobecane Fantom Cross, which is now my CX bike and my stable has grown to include a China carbon bike.
My question is for my wife however. She thinks that she might, kinda, maybe will want to go to some cross practices this year again, and maybe race this year. The problem is that she was riding on an old MTB that she got in college... i swear this thing has to weigh 30 lbs, she can barely lift it.
She keeps telling me NOT to buy her a new cross bike. But she said NEW. I am always watching CL for a smallish older bike that I could set up with 1xwhatever gearing setup and put a brifter on for her (1x9 if a standard 700c wheel will fit if it has longer reach centerpulls).
Am i just spinning my wheels trying to help her have a lighter bike going with an older steeley? She rides a 54cm womens bike, and rode real comfortable on a 51cm redline frame.
I need some tips. I figured the best option would be the current $399 sale on BD
