Convert 27" to 700c wheels
I have a early 80s Santana Soverign that I am looking to upgrade/modernize. My biggest question is can I switch to 700c wheels? It has canti mounts. Short of buying the new brakes, is there a way to tell, i.e. measure from the axle to the mount or something else.
If you have general suggestions on what to upgrade, it would be appreciated. Basically, everything is stock except saddles (brooks) and hubs (phil). The bike would receive limited use (1,000 or less a year), be used for touring and day rides.
