    Never thought of a compact double since I have none on an of my road bikes. That would be a lot cheaper option and probably acceptable to wifie. It is possible that the machine is already equipped...

    It sure sounds like 20 inchers all round is quite workable and I see no problem with a 90" top gear to be a problem with a tad unless they are faster than a DF . I seldom use much over 80' gears on...

    I soaked them both with WD40 over night and rode it this morning. Worked better so maybe I just need to give it some time. I don't think this bike has a 100 miles on it. Thanks to all for their help

    Actually I am not sure it would be an upgrade. I have a 93 Cannondale set up like you want and being an old dog I still prefer the old down tube shifters.
