Making a "hybrid" with riser bars out of a ca.2006 Reparto Corse frame??
I'm buying myself a new road bike, a Bianchi Via Nirone or Impulso most likely.
I also need a new good single speed / Hybrid with preferably 700cc wheels, but more of the simple maybe just 7 speed gripshift variety, for relaxed family trips down to the local bakery, beach etc. and following the 5year old on his bike.
CAN*T seem to find any bike I'm happy with, so maybe the solution is right in front of my nose!?
What if this could also be a Celeste beauty, but of the road bike /hybrid bastard variety?
I have a lovely Bianchi Reparto Corse aluminium road bike frame with a carbon fork, headset and bottom bracket already fitted. The intention was to make this into a road bike, but now I find myself too picky on equipment to the degree that it is cheaper to buy a new Via Nirone og Impulso :-)
IS IT possible to fit this with MTB gears of the simple 7speed variety (or 21speed), with grip shifters and riser bars on an Ahead set.??
Will then fit 700cc wheels with 23 or 25mm treads.
See pics attached.
Discuss: If a MTB group set would FIT, would it maybe be cheapest to actually BUY a cheap MTB hybrid in the winter sales to use as a DONOR ?? :-)!
