i currently have a FG that i'm trying to convert into a SS. I don't know too much about bikes, but I definitely would like to do this all on my own as a project. Hopefully I can get some help from you guys.
My bike has a drop bar, no brakes (although it has a mount on the fork and the seat stay). It doesn't have cable stops.
1. Brake levers. I think I want to run Aero brake levers. Anyone has any suggestions which one I should get? I saw a Cane Creek Drop V lever set that seems pretty cool. Is that good? Is there anything else I should consider?
2. Brake cable stops. What do I do since I don't have any? I think I read somewhere about people drilling them... I'm kind of hesitant about drilling. Suggestions?
3. Brakes. I think I'm pretty set on the Tektro R538. Unless someone has a better idea.
4. I need to build a back wheel. I think I want to run Deep-V's or B-43's (i'm a big dude). I need a 135mm back hub suggestion. oh yeah, i want to build it. any good wheel building guides out there? i have access to a truing stand, and most of the tools.
Any help, suggestion and comments would be great! Thanks!
