Mid 90's Trek 830, Early 90's Giant Innova, 60's Rollfast Starlight, '06 We The People
I have an early 90's Giant Innova frame and fork that I'm wanting to build. I did a search and couldn't find anyone using this as a touring bike. It's a cromo frame and has plenty of eyelets for rack and fender in the rear, and two eyelets on each tip of the fork, it's just missing the mid-fork eyelets. It uses 700c wheels as well. Are there any other reasons this bike wouldn't be good for touring?
I have a crank (46-36-26) that will do for the moment. Also, just ordered Silver Bar End shifters from Velo Orange. I have a B-17 on my Trek that will be transferred when I'm finished. And, I'll be ordering a new wheel set in the fall.
Any recommendations on brake levers and front and rear derailers?
