I just purchased a 2008/ Redline Conquest pro frame and fork and am considering options on components. It will be used a commuter/winter/ street group riding and probably will not see any off road except trails. I currently have a 93 Trek 920 that I built up as a fendered road bike with drop bars and a 9-speed Tiagra group, brifters and frt derailleur and a deore rear derailleur, using an old Sugino AT triple crank that I'm using as a double with a 48/36 set of rings. I can set this crank up as a triple if I want, not sure I see the need. I'm thinking of moving all of those components the the Redline, I have a good set of wheels, but I'm wondering about brake options. I'll eventually build the trek back as a mtn bike for one of my kids, so I'm leaving it's stock brakes on it. Really consider the mini v, probably the Tectro BMX one, but I'd appreciate some feedback.
